This work is a prime example of Jim Dine’s use of objects and familiar imagery as the basis to explore questions about personal, emotional and cultural issues. Dine draws upon the heart repeatedly, one of his signature motifs. The image of a heart is the most celebrated icon in Dine's oeuvre. He uses its motif to explore pattern, color and texture in both two-dimensions and sculpture. This is a classic and iconic example of Dine's hearts from his most sought-after period.

Jim Dine (American, b. 1935) is a painter, sculptor, poet, and performance artist whose work was included in the groundbreaking 1962 exhibition at the Pasadena Art Museum, “New Painting of Common Objects,” alongside Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol. The show was considered to be the first Pop art exhibition. Dine studied at the University of Cincinnati and the Boston Museum School. His work has been exhibited nearly 300 times since 1960. Dine was also instrumental in "Happenings," a precursor to Performance art, challenging the seriousness of Abstract Art. With straightforward and bright-colored imagery inspired by his childhood, Dine creates compositions that give a sense of innocence and nostalgia.
