For now, judge keeps Picasso at NYC's 4 Seasons

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — A conservation group has won a temporary injunction to keep a Picasso painting on the wall of the famed New York City restaurant The Four Seasons.

A state Supreme Court judge in Manhattan ruled Friday that the restaurant's owners and landlord can't remove the unframed 1919 stage curtain called "Le Tricorne" on Sunday.

Instead, the judge ordered the parties back to court next month.

The New York Landmark Conservancy owns the painting. Landlord RFR Holding Corp. has said the wall where the painting is hanging is threatened by a leaking pipe and shifting tiles.

The conservancy disputes those claims.

Conservancy President Peg Breen has said the city should preserve the $1.6 million piece by granting it landmark status.

The rest of the restaurant was granted landmark status in 1989.
