Appropriation, forgery or plagiarism?

I’m not sure what to make of this “Luc Tuymans found guilty of plagiarism for painting of politician”.

I can understand forgery – passing something of as one thing when it’s another.

I can understand appropriation – taking one thing and placing it in another context or adapting it to evoke a new meaning

But plagiarism with imagery? I’m stumped.

Answers on a postcard please.
