And sometimes, the best way to look at art is when you are naked.

How is it possible that crap sells for so much?

The Art of Money Laundering: The loosely regulated art market is rife with opportunities for washing illicit cash.
“More cases involving artwork and money laundering undoubtedly would be uncovered by law enforcement if art and antiquities dealers were added to the list of businesses legally liable for reporting suspect payments,” says Rick St. Hilaire, a former US prosecutor and an expert on art and antiquities law. “For now, it’s wide open.”
“Art is a very attractive vehicle to launder money,” says Peter D. Hardy, a former US prosecutor who now advises corporations and industries on compliance with anti-money-laundering requirements. “It can be hidden or smuggled, transactions often are private, and prices can be subjective and manipulated—and extremely high.”

A giant sculpture that has a large swirl of whipped cream with cherry on top and a drone along with a fly has been unveiled at London’s Trafalgar Square.

Phillipson told Reuters that she got the idea for the work in 2016 when Britain had just voted to leave the European Union and Donald Trump was campaigning for the U.S. presidency.

"Cream is this slightly impossible substance when wet, it's full of air so it means it's always on the verge of collapse, which is a state I felt we were in," she said, adding that some of those unsettling feelings had been heightened by recent events such as the coronavirus pandemic.

Perhaps the man who mauled this artwork was thinking of Trump while he worked?

Who Did This? Yet Another Amateur Art Restorer in Spain Has Absolutely Demolished a Once-Beautiful Artwork
When will the butchery end?


Spain, the country most famous for producing botched art restorations, has produced, for your viewing pleasure, yet another mauled artwork, this time in the city of Palencia.

What was once a handsomely carved smiling female figure surrounded by livestock has been transformed into a claymation nightmare.

In this case, which was first reported by a local news outlet, the results resemble a failed facelift undertaken on some poor, unwitting snowman. It’s almost as if a child was tasked with the job.

But really, what child could produce such a nightmare?

The female figure’s head, once tilted downward, is now a smooth, egg shape, with cockeyed mismatched eye sockets stuck on. The figure’s nose is a soft mound, and the mouth is formed by two thin, slightly upturned lips, her cheeks and chin nowhere to be found.

Taken together, the figure now resembles Donald Trump, one Twitter user noted, right down to the asymmetrical hair swoop.

On Facebook, Palencia resident Antonio Guzmán Capel noted that, while the restorer was doubtless at fault, the real criminal here was surely whomever commissioned the job and did nothing to rectify the grievous situation.

The Professional Association of Restorers and Conservators, bless its heart, noted on Twitter that “this is NOT a professional restoration.”

Thank you, Professional Association of Restorers and Conservators, for clearing up any confusion, especially when there is so much PR defense to play.

Back in June, when a painting of the Virgin Mary was transformed into an unrecognizable blur, the former president of the restorer’s association told the Guardian that more trained restorers were needed in the field, which was being marred by amateurs.

“Can you imagine just anyone being allowed to operate on other people? Or someone being allowed to sell medicine without a pharmacist’s license?” he added.
