3 SnapFacts about Koons:

* Jeff Koons' Rabbit sold at Christie's in May 2019 for a record-breaking $91.1 million (setting the auction record for the most expensive work by a living artist and the most expensive sculpture - for the second time for Koons since 2013)

* Koons exhibited at MoMA, Tate, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Centre Pompidou and many others, including a solo show at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford) in 2019

* This is Koons at his finest manipulating objects by preserving certain aspects and replacing others - in this case, he recreates the shape and gloss of a balloon monkey out of porcelain. Koons' balloon animals are attractive on many levels: everything about their bright colours and shiny surfaces invites interaction, but if you're lucky enough to touch one you realise that what your eyes played a trick on you. What appears to be light as air is in fact cast from metal (as is the case with larger sculptures) or made of porcelain (as with the smaller ones)
