In 1975, a young art student named Jeff Koons (b. 
1955) moved to Chicago, where he studied at the School of the Art Institute; worked as a studio assistant to his hero, painter Ed Paschke, for $1 an hour; and socialized with many of the city’s most talented artists.
This handsome book takes a fresh look at the rise and career of Jeff Koons, who is now arguably one of the world’s most famous artists. Koons collaborated extensively on this book, which accompanies the first solo museum exhibition in the U.S.
in 16 years and offers a survey of nearly thirty years of his work, beginning with iconic sculptures from 1979 to new paintings completed in 2007.
Francesco Bonami reconsiders his career, making intriguing connections to the work of Andy Warhol, A.
Milne, Marcel Duchamp, and Gustave Courbet, among others.
This is the first publication to explore a little-known but highly influential period in the artist’s career––his time in Chicago in the 1970s.
It also provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to Koons’s work for new audiences and short texts about each of his series and many major works.

  •     I've always been a fan of Jeff Koons. I love his wit, his irony, and his ability to push boundaries.Not only is this book/catalog a great survey of his work, but an incredibly thorough documentation of the artist's oeuvre and exhibition at the MCA Chicago. (Besides, the price here is fantastic - I bought this at the exhibition last summer and it is still worth every penny.)This is a must for artists, fans, educators, pop culture enthusiasts, and anyone interested in contemporary art.
  •     Book is good go through the artistic experience of Koons, lot of clear photo's of some famous artwork and a bit of gossip of the artist life.
