JEFF KOONS "INFLATALBE FLOWER & BUNNY" LITHO, 1995
Caviar20 has a particular interest in sculptors. Jeff Koons, as polemic as he is, is one of the 20th century’s most important and audacious sculptors.
This print is based on one of his early assemblages dating back to the late 1970’s.
In this early chapter of his career he was elaborating on a tradition of exploring/presenting/elevating mass-produced items similar to Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol before him.
Playful and prescient “Inflatable Flower & Bunny” gives a taste of the large scale, meticulously realized creations that Koons creates in the 1990’s and beyond such as his giant balloon dogs and Bilbao’s Puppy.
More recently, the actual "Inflatable Flower & Bunny" sculpture was included in his massive retrospective at the Whitney in 2014. It currently is on display at the Broad Collection in Los Angeles.
Over the course of his career Koons has created a very small number of prints. This affordable work by one of the most valuable artists of our day, is a celebration of one of his best early works.
This is one of the very few Koons multiples available on the market...priced below $10,000.
