The creations of Jeff Koons (born 1955) are at once immediately accessible and eloquently art-historical. From basketball tanks to flower puppies, his instantly-recognizable work frolics with banal imagery as much as it integrates cultural references such as Dada, Surrealism, and Pop Art.

Koons' art revels in visual pleasure, but also in the power to affront. He has made his name as much for stainless steel rabbits as he has with his sinister sculpture of Michael Jackson, or his sexually explicit photographic series with then-wife Cicciolina. The result is mega-artist status. An indisputable king of contemporary visual culture, Koons is lauded by collectors, institutions, and the public alike.

With landmark works and concise texts by Katy Siegel, Hans Werner Holzarth, and Eckhard Schneider, this book offers the complete Koons at a glance, introducing an art world giant from his early inflatable flowers through to today.
