A tall tail

India Today - - HOTSHEET -

Jeff Koons, sculp­tor par ex­cel­lence, whose fab­u­lously quirky cre­ations are roar­ing hits with art house col­lec­tors, seems all set to break his own record. His Bal­loon Dog ( orange), the last of the five me­tal­lic dog pieces he sculpted, is set to fetch be­tween $ 35$ 55 mil­lion, beat­ing his own 33.6 mil­lion ‘ Tulips’ sculp­ture. The 12- foot tall stain­less steel sculp­ture that repli­cates the taut look of a tied bal­loon is an abid­ing sym­bol of art his­tory and has graced the rooftop of New York’s Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art, Venice’s Grand Canal and the Ver­sailles Palace.
