Jeff Koons puts a fresh spin on the Old Masters for Louis Vuit­ton.

The mona Lisa kept a watch­ful eye over Jeff Koons this April at a pri­vate din­ner in his honor in­side her room at the Lou­vre—a fit­ting lo­ca­tion, given that the can­vas bags from Koons’s new col­lab­o­ra­tion with Louis Vuit­ton fea­ture Leonardo’s por­trait of La Jo­conde, as well as re­pro­duc­tions of mas­ter­pieces by ti­tian, rubens, Frag­o­nard, and van Gogh. Al­ways the provo­ca­teur, Koons says the project’s in­ten­tion is to bring art to the street and en­cour­age on­look­ers to view old masters anew. The idea is catch­ing on. Ja­panese bil­lion­aire yusaku maezawa, the new owner of a $110.5 mil­lion basquiat, proudly showed off his ac­qui­si­tion on his pub­lic in­sta­gram feed and plans to take it on tour. Could Jean­michel be in round two?
