Pretty in Pink

Jeff Koons - Balloon Dog (Versailles in 2008).

At Christie’s in November 2013 Balloon Dog (Orange) was sold to an anonymous telephone bidder for $58.4 million. Becoming, according to the New York Times, “the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction.”

Five Balloon Dog sculptures in red, magenta, blue, orange and yellow formed part of Koons’ ‘Celebration’ series in 1994.
