The Pompidou Center in Paris, in partnership with the Whitney Museum of America Art in New York, will present the first major retrospective devoted  to the work of Jeff Koons in Europe from November 26, 2014 to April 27, 2015.

Jeff Koons who was born in the united states in 1955, is now considered the most famous contemporary living and working artist in the world. Thus, this retrospective is a great news for all those who seek to (better) know this artist, so often maligned or adored. 

Jeff Koons has become one of the most famous contemporary artists, important but remain among the most controversial. For 35 years, he had explored new approaches to the "readymade" and ownership, playing the seam between elite culture and mass culture, pushing the limits of industrial manufacturing and artists changing the ratio to the cult of celebrity as market rules.

Being a visual artist and sculptor, Jeff Koons has mastered a range of media, including painting, photography and computer assisted creations.

With a premiere presentation of new works by this American artist, the exhibition also presents his most famous works, which became one of the  the most famous artistic "icons"of our time, including Rabbit (1986 ), Michael Jackson and Bubbles (1988) Balloon Dog (1994-2000) and the series of aquarium Equilibrium (1985).

However,this didn't stop stop Koons and his famous Orange Balloon Dog was sold for $58.4 million becoming the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction.
