Jet Art

Jackson Pollock splashed paint onto a canvas. Prince Jurgen von Anhalt took this method to the next level by using the blast of an airplane's jet engine to spray paint onto a canvas.

Just so you know, there's no such thing as a prince Jurgen [sic!] von Anhalt. He's a fraud. A (real, but mercantile) Princess of Anhalt "adopted" quite a few adult "sons" and "gave" them the surname - not title! - "Prince Anhalt", but all of that was worth as much as a certificate to a crater on the moon.

He's also been involved in some shady deals. Big surprise. As for Tarinan, she appears to be an artist of the more random kind, and not much else - which is slightly more than her husband is.

The person who could currently be the actual claimant to the Principality of Anhalt, though AFAICT he doesn't, is Eduard Prinz von Anhalt - and because of the weird way Germany got rid of its nobility, he is not Eduard Ascania, titled Prince of Anhalt; he really is Eduard, surnamed Prinz von Anhalt.

Jurgen, by contrast, is not even that much of a nobody. He's just a wannabe.
