Since he stirred up the art world establishment in the 1980s with his unapologetic basketball sculptures and stainless-steel toy blow-ups, Jeff Koons has been known as somewhat of a bad boy. His exploitation of the banal, in the aggrandizement and/or embodiment of kitsch and pop imagery, has become Koon’s trademark.
This exhaustive monograph is arranged in chronological chapters by work groups. The main body of the book features Katy Siegel’s detailed analyses alongside hundreds of large-format images, tracing Koons’s career from 1979 to today. This publication is not only a sumptuous book-object, but also the most comprehensive study of the artist’s work ever published. Limited to 1,500 numbered copies, each signed by Koons. This is number 0478.
