Description

In 1968, Capitol Records commissioned Jim Dine to create artwork for an upcoming Beatles album.

In this work, all four toothbrushes appear in a cup together.

About Jim Dine

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.
