American Artist Jeff Koons, Pompidou Center Convicted for Plagiarism

PARIS – American artist Jeff Koons has been convicted by a French court for plagiarizing an advertising campaign in the 1980s, judicial officials told EFE on Thursday.

The well known 63-year-old artist and the Center Pompidou in Paris will be forced to pay a fine of €148,000 ($169,890) for copyright infringement to Franck Davidovici, the author of an advert for clothing retailer Naf-Naf broadcast in the 80s.

Davidovici’s original legal claim demanded €300,000 and the removal of the sculpture which shared the advert’s title “Fait d’hiver” (1985) and depicted a virtually identical scene from the advert.

The advert depicted a young brunette lying in the snow being nudged by a pig.

Koons was already sued for plagiarism in March 2017 by the same French court.

On that occasion, the artists and the Pompidou Center were forced to pay a total fine of €40,000 to French photographer Jean-François Bauret who claimed Koon’s “Naked” porcelain sculpture was a 3D copy of his “Enfants” photo.
