Yellow Watercolors, 1993
Woodcut with watercolor
Edition of 24
54.3in x 40.7in
For Dine, the bathrobe is one of his most important images. He has used the robe to address his own identity and physicality, modeled after an illustration of a bathrobe seen in a newspaper advertisement. 'Yellow Watercolors' is a classic example of this iconography and is a large-scale woodcut with hand applied watercolor additions. It is in mint condition and is in a small edition of 24.
Jim Dine, one of the originators of the US Pop movement, was born June 16, 1935, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He took evening classes 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. His first solo show took place at the Reuben Gallery, New York, in 1960.
