2013 Hotel Deco Busting: Portrait of a Young Venetian Woman

Intervention Against Tasteless Wall Decorations in Hotels and Holiday Apartments.(Part 9)
Intervention gegen geschmacklose Wanddekoration in Hotelzimmern und Ferienwohnungen.(Teil 9)

Since 2010 I have secretly been slightly altering tasteless or boring hotel or holiday apartment art whenever I had the chance to.

Portrait of a Young Venetian Woman

'Young Venetian Woman' by Dürer in new colours after my intervention

‘Young Venetian Woman’ by Dürer in new colours after my intervention

We took a 3 day break during the lovely summer time and by pure chance found a lovely little holiday flat in Temmen. The living room was decorated with three ancient art prints of paintings by old masters. Unfortunately they were really bad prints and so old, that almost all the colour has faded and the images looked like cheap photocopies.

At least the owners displayed enough taste to hang copies of some real and great artworks. So I have decided to give the women some new colour and shine. This is the result and I do think the lady with the young Venetian lady is very chuffed.

Oh, and the thing above her head is how this painting was hung – just force the nail through the cardboard from the back… Very sad.
