First Survey of Jim Dine at National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

Leading American artist Jim Dine’s groundbreaking achievements as a draftsman beginning around 1970 are featured in Drawings of Jim Dine at the National Gallery of Art, March 21 through August 1, 2004. The first major survey of Dine’s drawings in over 15 years, the exhibition will include more than 100 of his drawings from around 1970 to the present, borrowed from public and private collections. Often associated with Pop art and the Happenings of the 1960s, Dine became known for his paintings, prints, and sculptures–works that employed recurring themes such as tools, hearts, and bathrobes.

I really really wish this show was coming to Vancouver – Dine’s prints were a big influence on me in my earlier work.
