Koons Fun Fact of the Day

Jeff Koons fun fact of the day:

Koons's works have prompted some tongue-in-cheek marketing ploys. When Christie's (auction house) offered the 1991 Red Butt, a 90-by-60 inch silk-screen painting of of Koons engaged in anal sex wiht his soon to be wife, which sold for $369,000 in 2000, the sale catalogue coyly hid the work behind a foldout panel proclaiming "Warning: The Following Image Contains Graphic Sexual Content."

If you want to meet Jeff Koons and get a private tour of his studio, led by the man himself, you can bid on the chance at www.charitybuzz.com. The auction ends on March 6, 2008.
