Lot description
The bathrobe is one of the most prominent symbols in Dine's iconography. As the image of the heart always refers to his ex-wife Nancy, who was the muse of many of his early works, the bathrobe refers to the artist himself.

The army of bathrobes Dine has composed over the decades contains nuances that make each a unique portrait in their own right, the congruent angle of the elbows being the over-arching feature common among all of the depictions. This robe in particular differentiates itself by way of its descriptive title and striking aquamarine background.
