Very rare, vintage lithograph poster of Jim Dine's 1983 exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. All the more so as it is hand signed, dated 1983 and dedicated "With Love" to Doreen. Let me know who Doreen is if you know. Nancy, the subject of the poster and exhibition, is of course Jim Dine's wife and muse. In original vintage frame; not examined outside of frame but appear to be in good vintage condition.
Measurements:
30 inches by 27 inches (framed)
26 inches by 24 inches (visible print)

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
