The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

NEW YORK — Alec Bald­win has set­tled a law­suit in which he ac­cused a prom­i­nent art dealer of fraud in­volv­ing a 1996 Ross Bleck­ner paint­ing.

The ac­tor said that gallery owner Mary Boone agreed to write him a “seven-fig­ure check” to set­tle his al­le­ga­tion she sold him a copy of Bleck­ner’s “Sea and Mir­ror” rather than the orig­i­nal.

“Maybe I’ll have Ross paint a pic­ture of the seven-fig­ure check that Mary paid me to set­tle,” said Bald­win, who paid $190,000 for the paint­ing.

The par­ties in­formed a court of the agree­ment Mon­day.
