Gallerie d'Italia


About the exhibition

On the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to the American artist Jeff Koons hosted at Florence’s Palazzo Strozzi, one of the masterpieces by the artist reaches the exhibition spaces of Milan’s Gallerie d’Italia museum.
The work exhibited in Milan – Gazing Ball (Centaur and Lapith Maiden) – is part of the famous Gazing Ball series, in which the artist places shiny, reflecting blue glass spheres on faithful reproductions of famous paintings and sculptures by artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci, Édouard Manet, Giotto, Vincent van Gogh, Praxitel and Cristophe-Gabriel Allegrain.

The masterpiece

In order to captivate and capture the viewer, Koons creates a work that becomes a hybrid between different temporal dimensions, conceived to foster a reflection on the relationship between the public and the work of art.
The reflecting sphere is placed on the plaster cast of a grandiose marble sculpture (over two and a half metres high and almost two and a half metres long) from the western pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia in Greece, depicting a fight between a centaur and a Lapith woman.
