Koons ‘Pink Panther’ sculpture to sell in NYC
NEW YORK (AP) - Jeff Koons‘ porcelain sculpture of a pink panther hugging a bare-breasted blonde is coming to a New York City auction. It’s estimated to bring $20 million to $30 million.
Sotheby’s is selling “Pink Panther” on May 10. There were three editions made of the work; the one up for auction is the artist’s proof.
Sotheby’s didn’t identify the seller of the artist’s proof. But The New York Times says it’s the publisher Benedikt Taschen.
Koons‘ “Balloon Flower Magenta” sold for $25.7 million in 2008 at Christie’s. It set a record for the artist.
