In a massively confidant trolling of the President Donald Trump, Guggenheim arch curator to the White House Nancy Spector offering to send the first family an 18-karat bullion toilet instead of their requested painting, “Landscape with Snow” by Vincent Van Gogh.
“It is, of course, intensely profitable and rather fragile, but we would yield all the instructions for its designation and care,” Spector wrote of the toilet in a 2017 letter obtained by the Washington Post.
The functioning toilet done of plain bullion is patrician “America.” The work was combined by contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan and debuted at the Guggenheim in 2016. Critics appreciate the piece to be a satirical matter about the additional of American wealth. The White House was offering “America” on a “long-term loan.”
“We are contemptible not to be means to accommodate your strange request,” the Spector’s minute to the Trumps concluded, “but sojourn carefree that this special offer may be of interest.”
