Jim Dine (b. 1935) was one of the most important Pop artists of the 1960s, and won early recognition for his art, not just in the US but internationally. The retrospective Jim Dine.
More than any other artist of his generation, Dine has created works using a wide variety of printmaking techniques and has repeatedly tested the limits and possibilities of graphic art – right up to incising the printing plates with a chainsaw.
We met the artist for an interview at the Museum Folkwang Essen. Many thanks!
