Collection: Jim Dine   1935 - present 

Dine was born in 1935 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at the Cincinnati Arts Academy and later at the Boston Museum School and Ohio University. Domestic objects dominate Dine’s paintings, favoured motifs including ties, tools and bathroom items. While Dine has remained devoted to the depiction of common objects, his experimental approach towards technique has yielded excitingly different stylistic results.

Dine is an unusually prolific artist and has worked in varying artistic media. His peripatetic lifestyle has been designed to maximize productivity, as he moves from place to place to take advantage of the numerous opportunities offered. He has set up dozens of temporary studios all over the USA and Europe in order to focus on special projects or to prepare exhibitions.
