...
Bryant was supposed to transfer possession of the paintings to Kravises on January 14, 2013 but he did not. Ten days later, on January 24, 2013, Kravises filed a lawsuit seeking specific performance on a contract.
In the papers filed in the Supreme Court of New York, Kravises allege that Bryant refused to honor the alternating ownership rights of Mr. Bryant and Mrs. and Mr. Kravis to periodic possession of the paintings prior to their donation to MoMA.
...
In January of 2013 for the first time in five years, Bryant refused to comply with the terms of the recorded agreements and sought to renegotiate the future of the paintings by repudiating the promise of a gift to MoMA. Kravises allege that there are two written agreements memorializing the joint ownership and possession of "Tantric Detail(s)."
The agreement apparently contains the following sections:
This Agreement with Respect to Art Works ("Agreement") dated as of January 1, 2009, acknowledges and memorializes the agreements between Donald L. Bryant, Jr. ("Mr. Bryant" or the "First Party") and Marie-Josée Kravis and Henry R. Kravis (jointly, the "Second Party" or "Mr. and Mrs. Kravis", and together with Bryant, "Donor Parties") with regard to [the Art Works]. This Agreement with Respect to Art Works ("Agreement") dated as of January 1, 2009, acknowledges and memorializes the agreements between Donald L. Bryant, Jr. ("Mr. Bryant" or the "First Party") and Marie-Josée Kravis and Henry R. Kravis (jointly, the "Second Party" or "Mr. and Mrs. Kravis", and together with Bryant, "Donor Parties") with regard to [the Art Works].
...
Bryant] had the right to physical possession of the Art Works until December 31, 2008.
...
... Each Donor Party irrevocably pledges (the "Pledge") to cause to be transferred all of such Party's right, title and interest, including copyright interest if any, in the Art Works to MoMA, either by way of (1) a gift during his or her lifetime or (2) a bequest under the Last Will and Testament or other testamentary instrument ("Will") of Mr. Bryant and or the survivor of Mr. and Mrs. Kravis, respectively, provided that, at the time of such gift or bequest, (i) MoMA is an organization that is organized and operated for a purpose described in (x) Section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") and (y) Code Sections 2055(a) and 2522 and (ii) additionally, if the transfer is a gift under Section II(A)(1), MoMA (x) is an organization that is described in Code Section 170(b)(1)(A) and (y) certifies that MoMA will use the Art Works in a manner related to and in furtherance of its charitable and educational purposes. . . .
...
Kravises alleged that Bryant is holding the works "hostage. They are asking the court to enjoin Bryant from violating Kravises rights to physical possession of the artworks and grant specific performance requiring Bryant to abide by the terms of the 2009 Agreement and honor the promise to gift his share of the art works to the Museum. If Bryant does not comply and the court finds in favor of Kravises, Defendant should expect to pay the legal fees of the speedy law offices of Gregory P. Joseph.

Bettina & Don Bryant, Jr. Bryant Family Vineyard

...
It was a 1929 Montrose that set Donald L. Bryant, Jr. on his journey into the world of fine wine. The founder of Bryant Family Vineyard in Napa Valley, Bryant's life as a vintner is marked by true passion and a drive for excellence.
After completing law school at Washington University, Bryant founded Bryant Group Incorporated, a business that designs employee and executive benefits for private companies as well as some of the largest public companies in America. The group also provides estate planning for wealthy families in the United States and abroad. Consistently recognized by Art News magazine as one of the "Top 200 Collectors in the World", Bryant has assembled a world-class collection of Post War, Contemporary and Old Master works of art. As committed to philanthropy as to art collecting, Bryant is a prominent supporter of arts education, the performing arts, museums, private schools and universities. In 1985 Bryant purchased a potential home site on Pritchard Hill overlooking LakeHennessey in St. Helena, CA. Shortly thereafter, he acquired a vineyard adjacent to the property and replanted it with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon using modern viticulture practices. The first vintage was released in 1992, which gave an indication of the superiorterroir and outstanding potential of this vineyard. Determined to improve the quality even further, Bryant engaged the architect Gyo Obata to construct a modern gravity-fed winery to enable the winemaker complete control in finishing the wine.
