The fort in the foreground of the Birch painting is on what was then called Bedloe's Island and later became the base for the statue of liberty.

Re: Great Works of Art!

Lifeboat - Jeff Koons

Before his wildly successful career as a world famous artist, Jeff Koons worked on Wall Street. In 1985 he cashed in and commissioned his first piece, and I have been a fan ever since.

In this first work he expresses a theme he would continue in later works such as the chrome inflatable bunnies and metal ballon animals - that of making the seemingly ephemeral and transient permanent, and in so doing mocking the values of both the art world and society as a whole.

The same qualities we value in bronze for marine use make it a material that connotes value in sculpture. Bronze is also very heavy adds ands it is questionable as to whether the lifeboat would function in spite of its permanence which adds to the irony.
