Lot description
Extremely rare and important silkscreen created by Jim Dine to advertise his first gallery exhibition in London at the famous Robert Fraser gallery. Fresh from his "Happenings" performances, Dine surrounds an intimate photo of himself and his sons with a sexually-charged black and white assemblage of "Swinging London" and the provocative mod fashions of the 1960s. Fraser, an Eton dropout who used his parents' money to fund his gallery, was a visionary who brought the New York Pop scene to London as well as launching British artists such as Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake and Bridget Riley to name a few.

The images on this poster are a forerunner of Dine's 1966 show at the gallery which was considered indecent and Scotland Yard forcibly removed the works and fined Fraser. In 1967, Fraser again came to the attention of police and was arrested with Mick Jagger for drug possession. The event was captured by Richard Hamilton in his famous 1968 painting "Swingeing London" and Fraser and the Rolling Stone's trial was the cause célèbre of the 1960s. That year, Dine moved to London and began a four-year residency that enabled his exposure to the fledgling European Pop scene.
