It’s no surprise that the Kardashian Jenner clan love contemporary art, as they sometimes talk about their influences on Keeping Up, pose regularly with artworks and even have it in their homes (during Vogue videos of 78 Questions With). Here are some of the artists – and the pieces – to find in the Kardashian Jenner clan personal art collections.

The fake Modigliani
Whichever artist faked this piece must feel very special considering the small splash of fame they might have had from it. Remember the 2014 episode when Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were gifted a Modigliani? As we saw in an episode of Keeping Up, it was a fake after a conservators took a look. Still, it’s a work of art in their hands and it’s spectacularly fake.

The acclaimed British fashion photographer who saw his rise shooting celebrities and fashion stars in the 1960s is featured in the home of Khloe Kardashian, who posted a photo of model Raquel Welch on a cross, which Khloe called a “dope piece of feminist art,” explaining “the picture was shot in 1966 to symbolize how Welch was ‘crucified’ by the entertainment industry for her sexuality.”
