Jeff Koons's American Hero, Popeye

New York | May 2014

Watch as Alexander Rotter, Co-Head, Contemporary Art Worldwide, explores the enduring power and appeal of Popeye as a subject for artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Jeff Koons, whose 2,000-pound, exquisitely coloured sculpture presents the cartoon icon as the ultimate American hero. Popeye will be on offer during our Contemporary Art Evening Auction on 14 May.
