Jim Dine


Jim Dine (b. 1935) was one of the original artists that defined Pop Art in the 1960s, redirecting American art away from abstraction with depictions of objects and items from everyday life. Embracing quintessential American images and icons, Dine used recognizable forms as the basis for bold, colorful compositions that flirt with abstraction. 

Over the succeeding decades, Dine has become most well known for his painting and printmaking of everyday objects such as bathrobes, neckties and tools, reducing them to their essence or transforming them into abstract allusions.

The eight prints that make up “The Poet Assassinated,” all signed and numbered by the artist, come from a collaborative work by Dine and Ron Padgett of Guillaume Apollinaire’s “Le Poète Assassiné.” The artist and the poet published an elaborately designed new translation of the text, one of the most important works of Surrealist literature. Apollinaire (1880–1919) not only coined the term Surrealism, but became an important champion of it and other avant garde art forms, notably Cubism, in the early 20th century.
