Looking at Jeff Koons

 

By PAUL LASTER, JUN 2014

With a nod toward Marc Dennis’ paintings and Laurence Aëgerter’s photographs of people looking at art, we corralled some of our artworld pals (both old and new) to take a gander at Jeff Koons paintings and sculpture on view in his spectacular retrospective at the Whitney Museum of America Art—and we even got Jeff and Marc to join in the fun.
