A unique collection saved from the bins of Jim Dine’s vacated Chester Square studio in 1971 at the request of Princess Sylvia Guirey (née Obolensky/Astor) the artist’s London landlady, this collection was stored and forgotten until 2012. The artworks in this group, mainly working sketches for print blocks, represent a pivotal era in the artist’s direction. Together with personal artefacts including photographs, letters and postcards, poems and manuscripts personally dedicated to Dine from poets Adrian Henri and Ron Padgett, and objects including paintbrushes, pencils and other material used in the creation of his artworks, this group offers a truly unique insight into the life of Jim Dine, one of the most significant artists of his generation, while in London during the Swinging Sixties. Each item is numbered, 18 items are framed in white gallery box frames, 6 items are mounted on steel plinths, the remainder reside in one Dine's old portfolios decorated with sketches and writing in Dine's own hand.

About Jim Dine

Although often associated with both Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism, Jim Dine did not identify with a specific movement, producing a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, works on paper, sculpture, poetry, and performances. Emerging as a pioneer (together with Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Whitman) of New York’s Happenings of the 1960s, Dine would carry the spontaneous energy of this movement throughout his style, which emphasized the exploration of everyday life. Personally significant objects were Dine’s primary motifs, as in his iconic series of hearts and robes. He championed a return to figuration after a period of more concept-dominated works, and is considered an important figure in Neo-Dada and a forerunner of Neo-Expressionism. “The figure is still the only thing I have faith in in terms of how much emotion it’s charged with and how much subject matter is there,” he once said.

American, b. 1935, Cincinnati, Ohio, based in New York, Paris and Walla Walla, Washington
