Jim Dine is a consummate fine art printmaker with a interest in, commitment to and experience with printmaking spanning decades, that is almost unparalleled in the history of modern art. Beginning his career as a superstar up and coming young artist connected with the Happenings of Allan Kaprow in the late 1950's, the young Jim Dine quickly gravitated to fine art printmaking, with important early serigraphs, followed by stone lithography and later etching, creating some of the most innovative original prints in modern art. His hunger for experimentation and innovation has been a hallmark of his career, taking the time to explore graphic medium, being unafraid to learn and share along the way. This experimentation helped re-invent modern portraiture with his creative etchings, including self portraits, the likes of which had not been seen since the time of Rembrandt.
Focusing on his early prints, DKH has a collection of original prints and vintage high quality posters connected to important early exhibits of his work that gives the viewer and collector a unique window in which to understand and appreciate the significant place he has in the history of modern art.
