Alec Baldwin, NYC art dealer settle lawsuit

NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin has settled a lawsuit in which he had accused a prominent New York City art dealer of fraud.

The actor tells The New Yorker that gallery owner Mary Boone agreed to write him a "seven-figure check" to settle his allegation that she sold him a copy of a 1996 Ross Bleckner painting called "Sea and Mirror," rather than the original.

Baldwin paid $190,000 for the painting. The parties informed a court in New York of the agreement on Monday.

Boone's attorney declined to comment. Boone told the New York Post's "Page Six" column that the dispute has been fueled by sexism.

Baldwin told the New Yorker he planned to donate half of the settlement to help rebuild a cinema on Long Island destroyed by fire
