A determined German cleaner destroyed a piece of art valued at £690,000 by cleaning away what she thought was an unsightly stain from the artwork.
The cleaner got to work on an installation by the late and famed artist Martin Kippenberger at a museum in Dortmund.
Entitled “When It Starts Dripping From The Ceilings” the piece comprised a tower of wooden slats with a plastic bowl at the bottom painted brown to give the impression of discolouration caused by water. The cleaner took the paint to be an actual stain and scrubbed the bowl till it looked new.
“It is now impossible to return it to its original state,” a museum spokeswoman said, adding that it appeared the cleaner was unaware of museum rules prohibiting cleaning staff getting with 20 centimetres of pieces or art.
Kippenberger was regarded as one of the finest artists of his generation until his death in 1997 aged just 44. His work now commands a high value and earlier this year one sculpture was sold at Christie’s in London for £1,329250.
The Dortmund incident in not the first time a piece of art has fallen victim to a cleaner. In 2004 a cleaner at the Tate Modern binned part of a work by artist Gustav Metzger.

Propunerea legislativă pentru introducerea unui nou acord internaţional cu Rusia în sistemul legal ungar conţine o serie de detalii neobişnuite, care acordă o serie de drepturi suplimentare pentru International Investment Bank (IIB), care este succesorul legal al Comecon şi al băncii fostei organizaţii economice sovietice. Documentul prevede că mare parte din costurile băncii - inclusiv remobilarea, chiria şi securitatea - să fie plătite de contribuabilii maghiari.  Presa ungară a subliniat că acordul menţionează o
