Even After Death “The Meteor Hits the Swimmers Pillow" Is a Keeper

The eccentric multimillionaire Manhattan philanthropist and super-skilled stock trader, Robert Wilson, who committed suicide at 87, after suffering a stroke, gave much of his $600 million fortune to various charities. But he still had holdings worth between $15 million and $20 million when he died, according to NyPo.

 In his will, he left $2 million to his executive assistant of over 30 years Angela Riccardi, of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn.

Wilson’s wine collection went to a close Manhattan friend named James Brehm, and he gifted the rest of his estate to a trust with unnamed beneficiaries.

Wilson left his extensive collection of paintings, prints, sculptures and other artwork to the Whitney — but curiously said the museum could not have his modern piece called “The Meteor Hits the Swimmers Pillow,” by James Rosenquist.

    When asked about this unprecedented finding, Harvard University spokesman Hav N. Taclue, III, responded, "Go figure?".
