The youngest of the brash upstarts (soon to be labeled Pop artists) who stole the spotlight from the Abstract Expressionists in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Jim Dine has been a restlessly creative force ever since. He has refused to limit himself to any one way of making art, though he has been surprisingly faithful to certain subjects, including his famous hearts, tools, bathrobes, and Venuses.

From Publishers Weekly:

Although best known for his pop-linked paintings of hearts, tools and robes, Dine based his exuberant drawings of Greek and Roman sculpture on his visits to the Glyptothek, Munich's museum of antiquities, as well as on statuary from the British Museum and the Prado. These mostly extroverted, bravura drawings are a form of time travel, an imaginative attempt to fathom the classical world while maintaining a modernist consciousness. The result is a curious hybrid, sometimes strained or unconvincing but often quite powerful, as in the fiercely expressionistic Wounded Trojan, who seems to represent the agony of all dying soldiers. In one hauntingly reflective study, the bust of Homer hovers above the nebulous face of Socrates like a Rorschach blot, a dark premonition of Western civilization. This handsome catalogue of a traveling exhibit includes appreciations by Fine, curator of modern prints at the National Gallery of Art, and Fleischman, director of the Madison Art Center in Wisconsin.
