Working closely with his collaborator and wife, Coosje van Bruggen, American pop artist Claes Oldenburg brought a playful element to an art world that largely took itself very seriously.

His most notable works take shape as larger-than-life everyday objects, such as spoons, trowels, safety pins and even rubber stamps.
