JEFF KOONS "TRAIN", 1995
Caviar20 is excited to offer "Train" - a signed and numbered print based on one of the artist's early ambitious sculptures "Jim Bean - J.B. Turner Train".
The work debuted in 1986 as part of Koon's legendary second exhibition "Luxury and Degredation".
Like the best of Koons' work there was a fascinating intersection between kitsch and relic, between glamour and banality.
The actual sculpture measured over 9 feet wide and was inspired by an actual Jim Beam decanter of a train. Koons created the sculpture in cast steel which was fitting considering the symbolism of American industry and development which so depended on steel.
"Train" was the largest work in the exhibition and would foreshadow his ambitions in steel. Within a few years Koons would create larger and more elaborate sculptures in steel including his famous "Rabbit" and the balloons of the "Celebration" series.
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.
