Lot description
Inspired by the sculptures of classic masters, Jim Dine created this work 'Glyptotek', a portfolio of 40 original intaglio prints, upon his return from the Glyptothek Museum in Munich, Germany. Dine's exemplary use of light and shadows is perfectly captured in this work. By combining elements of fantasy and reality, each drawing captures the ingenuous transformation of the classical figures from rigid structures to whimsical portraits.

A modern master of printmaking, Jim Dine (b.1935) has long combined Pop-informed imagery with a highly personal point of view. Among other popular subjects such as his iconic hearts and robes, flowers have also been a focus throughout Dine's career. Dine was born June 16, 1935, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at night at the Cincinnati Art Academy during his senior year of high school and then attended the University of Cincinnati, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Ohio University, Athens, from which he received his B.F.A. in 1957. Dine moved to New York in 1959 and soon became a pioneer creator of “Happenings”, together with Allan Kaprow, and Robert Whitman. He exhibited at the Judson Gallery, New York, in 1958 and 1959, and his first solo show took place at the Reuben Gallery, New York, in 1960.
