"I think there's a romantic quality in the work and there's some shame attached to that...To me that's the attraction to #Koons." —De Salvo
Burton sees a tension between the desire to open up what art can be & the simultaneous anxiety about holding on to tradition. #Koons
"It's a traditional show...it's surprising how quiet it is. But the works say something else." —Burton on tension while viewing #Koons.
"Warhol traded on the now, the journalistic, the iconic...The sources of #Koons's images are familiar, but not iconic." —De Salvo
Donna De Salvo: Much has been said about the connection btwn Warhol & #Koons but the differences more interesting! pic.twitter.com/hZXBVh6gZS
Lobel thinks a more appropriate predecessor to #Koons is Courbet & questions of taste are at heart of connection. pic.twitter.com/6eSxXGZWGS
"Warhol quickly expanded his reach into other fields...#Koons's motivations & ambitions reside firmly in the realm of art." —Lobel
