The youngest of the brash upstarts (soon to be labeled Pop artists) who stole the spotlight from the Abstract Expressionists in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Jim Dine has been a restlessly creative force ever since.
• He has refused to limit himself to any one way of making art, though he has been surprisingly faithful to certain subjects, including his famous hearts, tools, bathrobes, and Venuses.
"Dine is one of the most underrated artists to emerge from the Pop Art era and he has consistently followed his own path; a multi-disciplined artist, he has made his mark in painting, print-making, photography, sculpture and performance.
His photography isn't represented here; the Abbeville series are all rather dated - this was published in 1995 – and none of the volumes have been revised; this is nevertheless a good solid introduction to Dine`s work. There are 125 illustrations, 55 in colour; of particular note is a rather good selection of his drawings which I know from experience have impacted on many artists who work figuratively; there is a chapter devoted to this aspect of his work.
The texts are generally good and informative with notes on technique and artist's statements at the back – the standard format for the series."
"A comprehensive and interesting study. – Despite the enormous impact that Jim Dine has had on contemporary art there are few books that display the progressions in his work throughout his life as well and as comprehensively as this one. Ideal for the art student or for anyone wanting to learn more about Dine, this book is split in to easy to read chapters each with a particular theme. Within each chapter there are many examples of Dine’s work to complement the text, ranging from his early portraits to his later large-scale sculptures. Although this book is not as ‘in-depth’ as some, it does very well to give the reader a basic knowledge of everything about Dine, from technique to symbolism. As well as being useful for coursework, essays or projects, it is a generally good read. I hope to find that others in the series are as good as this."
