poor jeff, he now faces a second charge of plagiarism:
The wife of photographer Jean-François Bauret has accused Jeff Koons of copying one of her husband's works for the sculpture Naked (1988). Bauret died in January 2014 and was particularly known for his nudes. The sculpture is an edition of three and part of Koons's "Banality" series. It is included in the catalogue for his current retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. However, according to the museum, it was not placed on view in the show due to slight damage it experienced during transport.
