Paris photos: vandalized art in Versailles

British artist Anish Kapoor — who designed the Orbital tower at London’s 2012 Olympic grounds — has a series of sculptures on display on the grounds at Versailles, and one piece, called “Dirty Corner,” was recently vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

Kapoor initially stated an intention to leave the graffiti intact as an indictment of a culture that would produce such hatred, but the content of the graffiti upset many people, and it has now been painted over.

Disgraceful.
