Jeff Koons Donkey

Jeff Koons Donkey from the Easy Fun Series

The Jeff Koons Donkey Lithograph from the "Easy Fun" Series of Animal Shapes was created in 1999. For this limited edition of only 99 impressions, Jeff Koons created a shaped outline of a Donkey, and used richly colored lithographic inks to simulate a watercolor effect, so the Print looks unique.

This Jeff Koons Color Lithograph is in Pristine condition; the impression we are offering for sale has never been framed, hinged or matted so it looks as good today as it did when it was Mr. Koons signed this Lithograph in 1999.

For the Easy Fun series, Jeff Koons used computer technology to merge populist icons into desktop collages, which he transformed into traditional oil paintings rendered with photorealist precision. Drawn from glossy magazines and advertisements, the imagery includes smiley-faced sandwiches, spiraling roller coasters, succulent lips and abstract juice splashes.

These hybrids of fun and fantasy celebrate childhood pleasures and adult sexual desire: in keeping with Koons's stated intention to "communicate with the masses," the cheerful works are accessible to all.
