Not really in his spirit at all...
But you know what has happened to his "Fettecke". So they probably wanted to save these priceless objects from vicious attacks of over ambitioned cleaning personnel. I think Beuys would smile at this.

It is, and I would be willing to help, if I can. I actually held 5 out of the 6 Syd paintings that were auctioned in my hot little hands. The floral still life from 1963 was framed on the wall, so I couldn't get my mitts on it!Unfortunately, I'm a biochemist, and never took Art History in any form or fashion, so I would be no help in assessing the technical characteristics and techniques of his paintings.
