JEFF KOONS "HOOVER", 1995

When Jeff Koons debuted his "Hoover" sculptures he firmly established that he was the successor extraordinaire to Marcel Duchamp (and his revolutionary "Fountain" sculpture from 1917)

The sculptures debuted at the New Museum in New York City. They were cleverly ironic: Machines protected in vitrines from dust and dirt, when they were created to help remove such elements.  

Like the best of Koons' work there was a fascinating intersection between consumerism and high art, between precious and banal. 

If you saw the Whitney's generous retrospective on Jeff Koons in 2015, one of the most striking features of the Hoover sculptures was the contrast between the contemporary minimalism of their presentation and the outdated technology of the contents of the vitrine. 

(We recommend visiting the Whitney's site where you can listed to some of the audio guide segments on these works and their centrality to Jeff Koon's body of work.)

Over the course of his career Koons has created a very small number of prints or multiples. This affordable work by one of the most valuable artists of our day, is a celebration of one of his best early works.  

This is one of the very few Koons multiples available on the market...priced below $10,000.
