Post-War and Contemporary Art - New York, November 2013

Jeff Koons

Balloon Dog (Orange)

About

Jeff Koons

b. 1955

Jeff Koons’s Balloon Dog has been lauded as one of the most beloved of all contemporary sculptural forms, having graced the rooftop of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Venice’s Grand Canal, and Versailles Palace outside Paris. This season, the artist’s monumental Balloon Dog (Orange) — a timeless and universal monument to the joys of childhood—comes to New York as a leading highlight of our Post-War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale. The proceeds from the sale of this work, which is from the Brant Collection, will be used to help fund future activities of The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut.

"It’s a very optimistic piece, it’s a balloon that a clown would maybe twist for you at a birthday party. But at the same time it’s a Trojan horse."

–Jeff Koons
