The story is simple: one New York City landlord, Mark Arrow, had been unable to collect $21,000 (+) in rent from his former Manhanttan tenant, Biond Fury. Fury is a collector and seller of memorabilia, including items related to the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe. In January, he sold a suit worn by the late John Lennon through Braswell Galleries for $46,000.
As the ArtDaily reported, Arrow’s prospects of collecting unpaid rent brightened when he learned of the sale. Now, Arrow has sued the gallery for a part of the proceeds in an effort to satisfy his rent debt.
