The creations of Jeff Koons (born 1955) are at once immediately accessible and eloquently art historical. From basketball tanks to flower puppies, his instantly recognizable work frolics with banal imagery as much as it integrates cultural references such as Surrealism and Pop Art. He has made his name as much for stainless-steel rabbits as he has with his sinister sculpture of Michael Jackson
An indisputable king of contemporary visual culture, Koons is lauded by collectors, institutions, and the public alike. With landmark works and concise texts, this book offers the complete Koons at a glance, introducing an art world giant from his early inflatable flowers through to today.
