JIM DINE "RAINBOW SCISSORS" LITHO, 1969
Jim Dine (b. 1935) was one of the key artists that shaped American Pop Art in the 1960s. Like Jasper Johns, Wayne Thiebaud and Andy Warhol, Dine appropriated quintessential American images and icons.
Yet curiously, during its heyday, Dine remained on the periphery of the Pop Art movement and was more of a prominent contributor of the “Happenings” movement alongside Claes Oldenburg and John Cage.
Over the succeeding decades, Dine has become most well-known for his painting and printmaking of objects like bathrobes, neckties, hearts, and tools reducing them to their essence or transforming them into abstract allusions.
The rainbow is a popular supporting character, sharing space with his favorite subjects.
This is a simple but uplifting early work and a great example of Dine’s soft aesthetic, whimsy and muted palette.
Dine's work can be found in important public collections around the world. The Musée des Beaux Arts de Montreal and MoMA have particularly important collections of his work.
