Jim Dine Selected Prints 1996-2006

£16.99

Product description

From his pioneering 1960s Happenings and Pop art assemblages to his Expressionistic works from the 1970s and his current fascination with the story of Pinocchio, Jim Dine manages to maintain relevance in the art world despite, or perhaps because of, the constant changes he has made in his work during the last 40 years. Drawing and printmaking have had a central place in Dine's oeuvre since the 70s, when he began collaborating in earnest with master printers throughout the U.S. and Europe. This pocket-sized, affordable publication is a collection of 47 prints, two illustrated books and a recently published portfolio, all of which feature Dine's signature iconography: hearts, robes, self-portraits, flowers and birds. Of particular interest are the Pinocchio prints, as Dine has spent the last several years engaged in a visual translation of the mythology and archetypal imagery in Carlo Collodi's classic tale. As Dine states: "His poor burned feet, his misguided judgment, his vanity about his large nose, his temporary donkey ears all add up to the real sum of his parts. In the end, it is his great heart that holds me. I have carried him on my back like a landscape since I was six years old."

Produced by The Amie and Tony James Gallery, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York. Includes a glossary of print-making terms.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
