Belgians' most renowned painter Luc Tuymans has been convicted in a Belgian court for the plagiarism of a photo by photographer Katrijn Van Giel. The photo represents a Belgian politician Jean Marie Dedecker, whom Artdependence Magazine asked for a reaction on the subject: "In my opinion the case could have been avoided by using common sense, Tuymans defends himself by saying it's a parody, which in my opinion is not". Dedecker also adds that he is happy being portrayed by Luc Tuymans.
