Bob Dylan the new Henri Cartier Bresson….?

writes in the Guardian
“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.”…more       I say what about the dull boring music?
The exhibition is at
The Gagosian Gallery
Madison Avenue
980 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10075
Is this is what is meant by a cover version?

    The real question here is did Bob trace the photos himself in these identical copies or did he pay someone else to do it for him? I think we should be told.
