JIM DINE "MIDSUMMER WALL" 1966
Caviar20 regularly handles Jim Dine multiples.
Our clients love his casual aesthetic, fun but controlled palette and his groovy 60's sensibility.
Jim Dine (b. 1935) was one of the key artists that shaped American Pop Art in the 1960s. Like Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, Dine appropriated quintessential American images and icons.
Yet curiously, during its heyday, Dine remained on the periphery of the Pop Art movement and was more of a prominent contributor of the “Happenings” movement alongside Claes Oldenburg and John Cage.
Over the succeeding decades, Dine has become most well-known for his painting and printmaking of objects like bathrobes, vegetables, rainbows, neckties, hearts, and tools reducing them to their essence or transforming them into abstract allusions.
"Midsummer Wall" is a fantastic (and quite large) example of Jim Dine's world. Many of his favorite icons appear in this playful arrangement.
It is also worth noting that this is a very small edition (only 26) where typically Dine multiples are 100 or even 200.
Dine's work can be found in important public collections around the world. The Musée des Beaux Arts de Montreal and MoMA have particularly important collections of his work.
