Artist: Jim Dine

American painter, sculptor, and print artist Jim Dine spent part of 1979 at Jerusalem’s Burston Graphic Center. The prints he created there included self-portraits and depictions of his robe, an object which he had come to view as a reflection of his self. A selection of works from this year reveals the dexterity with which he merged print techniques: etching, lithography, and screenprinting, manually and mechanically treated plates, and drawings done directly on the paper. The work’s visible erasures and adaptations, illuminate the many evolutions of an emerging idea.
