When it comes to painting, Bob Dylan may not be such an original. The 70-year-old singer has been accused of replicating several famous photographs in his new art show. The Asia Series includes paintings that seem like acrylic reproductions of images by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dmitri Kessel and Léon Busy.

  1. Interesting... Of course, it's not the first time that Dylan has been accused of plagiarism.
    His album "Love and Theft" had some lyrics he appeared to borrow from... I don't know, some Japanese dude or something.

    Every artist borrows and steals, though.
    The end result (and its effect on its audience) is the whole game.

    By that standard, I dunno about these.

    I think he still has a day job, though.
