Jeff Koons, Pink Bow" (Celebration Series), 2013. SOLD OUT
Koons started working on the Celebration Series in 1992. His plan was to create colossal reproductions of easter eggs, party hats, valentine hearts, balloon animals and other "celebratory" images. It turned out to be hugely expensive and his domestic crisis didn't help. The Celebration Series was eventually completed and, in 2000, when it started to be shown in museums around the world, it immediately renewed and deepened his reputation, at least with those prepared to give him a chance.
The Celebration Series comprise around 20 sculptures and 15 large format paintings. The most famous piece of the series is Koons’ Balloon Dog (Orange) which sold at Christie's Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York for $58.4 million, becoming the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction. Koons created the 'Pink Bow' oil on canvas (270 x 346 cm) in 1995 -1997.
