Catalogue Note

Jeff Koons directed and shot a seven-image portfolio of the actress Gretchen Mol as Bettie Page for The New York Times in the March 12, 2006 issue. Referencing this portfolio, Girl with Lobster, 2014, is a limited-edition print by Jeff Koons that features Gretchen Mol, the star of The Notorious Bettie Page, aside his iconic lobster inflatable with a reflective silver line drawing in the foreground that for the artist references fertility, Mother Nature, and the painting The Origin of the World by Gustave Courbet.
