Jim Dine first started to explore the form of a vacant robe in 1964. Always depicted in a heroic stance, exuding power and confidence, Dine has continually embraced this motif to lend character to everyday objects. Here, the robe is sketched in sharp, black lines atop a robin’s egg background. The quick nature of the outline lends a rustic appeal to the work, breaking up a print that might otherwise seem derivative.

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.
