Jim Dine The Paris Review Poster
40 x 26 in (102 x 66 cm)
Original poster designed by Jim Dine for the Paris Review. Jime Dine was a prolific artist, whose work defied classification: throughout his long career, he explored Neo-Dadaism, Abstract Expressionism, and Pop Art, which he is most commonly associated with, despite his own disinclination towards affixing a single label on his creations. Dine's work has strong auto-biographical elements to it. A common motif in his work are tools, and this harkens back to his childhood in Cincinnati, working in his grandfather's hardware store. Regarding this nostalgic iconography, Dine's commented, "I grew up with tools. I came from a family of people who sold tools, and I’ve always been enchanted by these objects made by anonymous hands." In Dine's work, the mundane becomes personal.
