White House asks for Van Gogh loan – but Guggenheim offers gold toilet instead | The Guardian

Ha ha, this was a good one. Not only for obvious reasons but also because it would so well correspond to Trump’s upstart glitter aesthetics.

The Guggenheim Museum has reportedly turned down a White House request to borrow a Van Gogh painting, and has instead offered the Trump administration the use of a golden toilet.

The White House had asked the Guggenheim, based in New York, to borrow Landscape With Snow, Van Gogh’s 1888 work depicting a man and a dog walking through a field.
