Lot Details

This whimsical Balloon Dog, which is cast porcelain coated with a red reflective finish attached to a porcelain plate, is a multiple after the artist's large scale original. Last September, Koons installed a full scale red balloon dog in Versailles and created an uproar of delight (and horror among the old guard) in France.

Jeff Koons is among the most controversial artists to have emerged in the past 20 years, spawning a new generation of Neo-Dada artists, such as Damien Hirst. Like Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, Koons is concerned with the transformation of everyday objects into art, merging high culture and kitsch.

Comes with its own perspex stand/base and the original white cardboard box with red lettering "JEFF KOONS". This Jeff Koons Sculpture is contained in the original box as published and has never been opened.
