Postcard Distributed at Documenta 9 (Germany), Jeff Koons, Puppy, 1992
Jeff Koons created this huge, 33-foot high topiary puppy in Arolsen Germany close to Documenta 9, the art fair in nearby Kessel. Consisting of living plants over a steel support, Koons’ puppy was inspired both by 18th century gardens and contemporary cute, puppy-lovers’ kitsch. This postcard published by Koons shows the temporary installation of the Arolsen Puppy, the earliest version of what would become one of his most famous creations.
