Art History Influencing artist ( Jeffrey Koon’s )
Description Of Artwork My artist Jeffrey "Jeff" Koons (born January 21, 1955) is an American artist known for his reproductions of banal objects—such as balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces. He lives and works in both New York City and his hometown of York,Pennsylvania.Americanballoon animalsstainless steelfinishNew York CityYorkPennsylvania His works have sold for substantial sums of money, including at least one world record auction price for a work by a living artist. On November 12, 2013, Koons’s Balloon Dog (Orange) sold at Christie's Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York City for US$58.4 million, above its high US$55 million estimate, becoming the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction.  The price topped Koons’s previous record of US$33.7 million  and the record for the most expensive living artist, held by Gerhard Richter, whose 1968 painting, Domplatz, Mailand, sold for US$37.1 million at Sotheby’s on May 14, 2013.  Balloon Dog (Orange)was one of the first of the Balloon Dogs to be fabricated, and had been acquired by Greenwich collector Peter Brant in the late 1990s. Christie's  Gerhard RichterSotheby’s Peter Brant  Critics are sharply divided in their views of Koons. Some view his work as pioneering and of major art-historical importance. Others dismiss his work as kitsch: crass and based on cynical self-merchandising. Koons has stated that there are no hidden meanings in his works,  nor any critiques. kitsch  
Comparison of Art My sculpture is similar to his because it is a sculpture and his is also sculpture also they are different in so many ways I gave mine a rough texture but his has a smooth texture. Also mine shows a human figure his shows an animal figure and they are totally different Some other similar ways are mine show’s a man walking his show’s a dog walking and they seem to be walking to the same direction.
Analysis Of Art I think that Jeffrey Koons will like my artwork because it is a nice sculpture is a different kind of artwork from his because people love learning new thing’s everyday
