Jim Dine was one of the key artists that defined American Pop Art in the 1960s. Like Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, Dine appropriated quintessential American images and icons. 

He used these ubiquitous and familiar forms as the basis for bold and colourful compositions inspired by Dada assemblage, Abstract Expressionism and collage techniques.

“Red Design for Satin Heart” was created as part of Dine’s illustrations of a stage script of Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray.” 

While it is questionable how this image relates to Oscar Wilde's chef d'oeuvre - it is Dine's signature motif - and a Dine portfolio wouldn't be complete without it. This work is also one of the earliest examples of a Jim Dine heart.

Dine’s illustrations from “The Picture of Dorian Gray” are in the collections of such prestigious museums as The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Art Gallery of Ontario. 

For another great example of Dine’s work from “The Picture of Dorian Gray” offered by Caviar20 see “Hose Lamp.”
