The Triumphant Return Of Steve Cohen (To Sotheby’s)

It’s been a while since Steve Cohen had a little shop therapy to help deal with, well, you know. Since then, he’s maybe been feeling a little strapped. Something about having to cough up $1.2 billion over some garbage that he had absolutely nothing to do with, perhaps. Since then, things are looking up, and the big guy has gone from seller to buyer—attention: Art & Auction magazine—in a big way.

The lone bidder who spent $101 million at Sotheby’s last Tuesday night for Giacometti’s “Chariot,’’ a 1950 sculpture of a spindly woman riding atop a chariot, was the hedge fund billionaire Steven A. Cohen, experts with knowledge of the sale said Monday….

“Steve is a very serious, very astute collector,’’ Mr. Acquavella said. “He also has just the right instincts, ones that can’t be learned from reading art history books.’’

FYI: Steve Cohen Is Still Steve Cohen

Black or otherwise, the Big Guy’s still got an edge.
