Jeff Koons accused of plagiarism for the second time this month
New artistic accusations
Now, Claude Bauret-Allard, the wife of Jean-François Bauret, has come forth to state the American artist plagiarised her husband's photograph that shares a similar resemblance. The woman, has reached out to both Koons and the Centre Pompidou in Paris where it was expected to be a part of a retrospective installation, however she has yet to hear a response from them.
On December 17, the contemporary artist was also accused of copying a 1985 advertisement for French clothing brand Naf Naf. The Frenchman who created the ad in question, Franck Davidovici, claimed that Koons' 1988 sculpture Fait d'Hiver is a reproduction of his own work, with him likely to pursue legal action against Koons.
