Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Locksley Shea Gallery, Minneapolis.
    Acquired from the above by the previous owner in June 1972.
    By descent from the above to the present owner.

    Jim Dine's works have been the subject of nearly 300 solo exhibitions. He has had major retrospectives at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1970), the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1978), the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (1984), the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (1983) amongst others.

    Following is move to New York in 1959, Dine became a pioneer of the Happenings movement together with Allan Kaprow and Claes Oldenburg. He created his first works in assemblage in 1960 and later in the decade became closely aligned with the development of Pop art in the early 1960s. He began affixing his own everyday objects, such as tools, rope, shoes, articles of clothing, and even a bathroom sink, to his canvases. These autobiographical assemblages further evolved into the representational imagery Dine has come to be known for, such as his depictions of hearts and robes.

    Jim Dine is represented by Pace Gallery, New York and his works have been recently exhibited at Galerie Daniel Templon, Brussels, Alan Cristea Gallery, London and Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
