The Daily Mail reported that Cohen, the founder of Connecticut-based SAC Capital Advisors, bought Picasso’s Le Rêve for $155 million—$16 million more than the price he initially agreed to.

The hedge fund manager first agreed to purchase the artwork from Las Vegas mogul Steve Wynn for $150 million in 2006, right before Wynn accidently tore a hole in the painting with his elbow. The painting has since been restored to its original state.
