Jim Dine was born in 1935, in Cincinnati, USA. Dine moved to New York and soon became a pioneer creator of 'Happenings' together with Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Whitman. Dine is one of the most significant artists of his generation, his paintings, sculptures, photography, and prints have been the subject of over 300 solo exhibitions worldwide, most recently at Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome (2020). He is one of the most naturally gifted printmakers working today and has been honoured with major print retrospectives including at the National Gallery, Victoria (2017); Albertina, Vienna (2016); Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (2007) and Centre de la Gravure et de l'Image Imprimée, Belgium (2008). In 2013 A Printmaker's Document by Jim Dine was published, tracing 50 years of his printmaking career. In 2014 Dine gifted over 200 prints in single sheets, portfolios and illustrated books, to the British Museum, in honour of Alan Cristea.
