Claes Oldenburg, a 93-year-old sculpture who created enormous commonplace things, passed away.
Oldenburg passed away on Monday in his New York City home and studio after recently suffering a fall
He was well-known for his sculptures of pastries, cakes, and cheeseburgers fashioned out of soft cloth or foam rubber
Moreover, he was also known for the enormous pieces he created with his late wife Coosje van Bruggen.
They worked together for more than three decades after being married in 1977.
His wife died in 2009 after being given a breast cancer diagnosis.
He transformed sculpture from being hard to being soft, and his influence is still seen today.
"The Store," one of Oldenburg's seminal early works of pop art, was created in the winter of 1961.
