Love him or hate him, Jeff Koons is responsible for some of the most memorable art of the 20th century. In 2013, his Balloon Dog (Orange), made of stainless steel with a transparent coating, set a record for a living artist when it sold at Christie’s for $58.4 million in 2013. Part of a series that transforms a playful child’s party favor into a monumental sculpture, Koons also created other versions in blue, magenta, red, and yellow.
