A controversial sculpture by British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor was vandalized at Versailles this week. Damage to Dirty Corner was discovered on Wednesday morning, said management, and that the work was being cleaned.

Kapoor once compared Dirty Corner to a vagina, which caused quite a kerfuffle because no one is supposed to talk about vaginas, let alone sculpt them and display them at Versailles.

Kapoor's summer exhibition at Versailles also includes Shooting Into the Corner, the first work by a contemporary artist ever displayed in the Jeu de Paume, Sky Mirror, and C-Curve (below).
