This is a fantastic double-sided offset lithograph poster featuring Jeff Koons' Split-Rocker, hand-signed and dated in bold black marker by the artist. The poster was published by Gagosian Gallery on the occasion of Koons' outdoor exhibition in Rockefeller Center. Koons later personally signed it for me after his talk at Barnes & Noble in Manhattan on December 1, 2014 with Sir Norman Rosenthal. Provenance is direct and irrefutable because Koons signed it for me in front of Norman Rosenthal. Buyer will be furnished with a receipt documenting the provenance, as well as literature about the event where Jeff Koons signed this gorgeous poster.
Makes a terrific gift.

About Jeff Koons

Jeff Koons plays with ideas of taste, pleasure, celebrity, and commerce. “I believe in advertisement and media completely,” he says. “My art and my personal life are based in it.” Working with seductive commercial materials (such as the high chromium stainless steel of his “Balloon Dog” sculptures or his vinyl “Inflatables”), shifts of scale, and an elaborate studio system involving many technicians, Koons turns banal objects into high art icons. His paintings and sculptures borrow widely from art-historical techniques and styles; although often seen as ironic or tongue-in-cheek, Koons insists his practice is earnest and optimistic. “I’ve always loved Surrealism and Dada and Pop, so I just follow my interests and focus on them,” he says. “When you do that, things become very metaphysical.” The “Banality” series that brought him fame in the 1980s included pseudo-Baroque sculptures of subjects like Michael Jackson with his pet ape, while his monumental topiaries, like the floral Puppy (1992), reference 17th-century French garden design.
