Healing Art Appeal To Support The NHS
In these unprecedented times the art community, like every other, has suffered enormous disruption and uncertainty. Finding a balance between compassion for the most vulnerable in society and facing the pressures of maintaining our businesses is not easy.
In seeking to address both pressures we have formed a partnership with the Maudsley Trust who are running an emergency fundraising campaign for the NHS. By offering a substantial discount of between 10-30% off selected works, we are asking our clients to donate 10% of the final saving to the NHS.
Why Maudsley Charity NHS Mental Health Appeal?
There are many fundraising initiatives operating at the moment around COVID-19. The mental health impact surrounding COVID-19 is already growing into a national crisis. Whether it is single parents struggling to home-school whilst paying the bills, business owners facing bankruptcy, or family members suffering the loss of loved ones in isolation, this crisis will be played out in a myriad of ways.

Balloon Rabbit (Magenta) 2017Healing Art Appeal
Porcelain with chromatic coating,
29.21h x 13.97w x 20.96d cm
One of today’s most controversial working artists, Jeff Koons has had a decidedly unique career that runs counter to many art historical norms; despite his playful, often hyperbolic, artistic style, Koons has undertaken a number of shockingly conventional jobs in his life, such as working as a commodities broker on Wall Street, before fully devoting himself to art. Koons has developed an artistic persona that is simultaneously blithe and over-the-top. The artist has repeatedly asserted that his work should be taken at face value, and that there is no hidden meaning or interpretive content; this, in conjunction with his use of both kitsch and banal materials and motifs, has greatly contributed to the polarizing nature of his career. Koons’s most distinguishable design is that of a balloon dog, which he has recreated in several iterations. His Rabbit, a stainless steel figure measuring just over 3 feet tall, holds the highest auction record for a living artist, selling for $91 million in 2019. Koons continues to live and work in New York City, where he has undertaken public commissions (such as Seated Ballerina, 2017, in Rockefeller Center), and his work is held in several collections, such as the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
