A gold toilet has been stolen from the birthplace of Winston Churchill 🚽Maurizio Cattelan, the Italian artist who created the 18-carat gold toilet has compared the theft to a “kind of Robin Hood-inspired action”. Burglars caused “significant damage and flooding” at the 18th Century stately home when they removed the plumbed-in artwork during the smash-and-grab in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, in the early hours of Saturday. The solid gold commode, estimated to be worth £4.8 million and entitled ‘America’, was the showpiece of an exhibition that opened at Blenheim Palace on Thursday. Mr Cattelan, 58, who is often dubbed the “the art world’s court jester”, rejected the suggestion that he was behind the theft as a stunt.
He told The New York Times: “I wish it was a prank. I want to be positive and think the robbery is a kind of Robin Hood-inspired action.”
Police said a 66-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the theft and remains in custody. The toilet has not been found and it is feared it could be melted down.
It comes three weeks after Lord Edward Spencer-Churchill, the half-brother of the Duke of Marlborough, said he had no plans to increase security around the loo.
He told The Sunday Times last month: “It’s not going to be the easiest thing to nick... so no, I don’t plan to be guarding it.” Following the raid, Blenheim Palace said it was relieved no-one was hurt, adding it was a “great shame an item so precious had been taken." #theipaper#inews#uknews#gold#toilet#goldtoilet#blenheim#blenheimpalace#winstonchurchill#art#artinstallation#MaurizioCattelan

I @polaroiders_it , capitanati da quella fata dell' @alewino, organizzano un #polawalk , ovvero una passeggiata creativa alla ricerca di soggetti interessanti da immortalare con la cara, vecchia polaroid. Io, che non sono una fotografa, ma sostanzialmente solo una camminatrice nostalgica, mi armo della mia macchina e seguo gli artisti. Con me ce n'è una, la mia @juliet_illa. L'altra volpe, la @luna_towanda, non ce la siamo dimenticata a casa eh, l'abbiamo lasciata intenta a dirigere la sua @bottega42_savignano, che ospita proprio la mostra di Polaroiders.it 🦊
Così, a cavallo tra la stagione che odio e la stagione che amo, ho passato un pomeriggio alla scoperta della Savignano nascosta. Che bella oh, andate a cercarla ❤

Stolen!!! Two days after the inauguration of @mauriziocattelan exhibition at the @blenheimartfoundation in Woodstock in the United Kingdom, at dawn on September 14th a band of thieves would have burst into Blenheim Palace and stolen the world-famous gold toilet. America, this is the title of the 18-carat gold sculpture that was exhibited in 2017 - and fully functional! - at Guggenheim in New York.
