    Jeff Koons' "Girl with Dolphin and Monkey" (2014) features a photorealistic image of a smiling blonde woman in a polka-dot swimsuit, playfully holding a shiny inflatable dolphin and a cartoonish monkey. The backdrop is a flat, colorful scene.

    This work embodies Koons' signature themes. The woman, reminiscent of a pin-up girl, combines innocence with sexuality. The inflatables reference childhood and mass-produced culture, while the vibrant background adds a layer of kitsch.

    This work has never been framed and is in excellent condition. 

    "The job of the artist is to make a gesture and really show people what their potential is. It's not about the object, and it's not about the image; it's about the viewer. That's where the art happens."

    Jeff Koons

    Jeff Koons, born in 1955, is an American artist known for his giant, reflective sculptures that blur the line between high and low art. Growing up, he was fascinated by popular culture, a theme that would permeate his work. After studying art in Chicago and Baltimore, Koons launched his career in the 1980s with controversial, inflatable recreations of everyday objects.
