Trump asks for Van Gogh from museum. Is offered gold toilet instead.

Artist offers Trump a used toilet, asks “What's the point of our life?”

An artful commentary on the post-modern reality performance piece called the Trump Show, the Guggenheim writes our next…

Mr. Trump’s curator asked the Guggenheim museum for a favor. Trump would like to borrow Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 ‘Landscape with snow,’ to hang in he and Melania’s personal space at the White House. Nancy Spector, Guggenheim curator, declined politely. Instead she offered an 18k gold, fully functioning toilet called ‘America’ by Maurizio Cattelan. She graciously offered help with installation, and attached a photograph of the piece. One of Mauricio’s other works is a kneeling baby Hitler, so perhaps Ms. Spector sensed a theme Trump might like?
