1986 · New York
by D'Oench, Ellen G. and Jean E. Feinberg
New York: Harper & Row, 1986. Hardcover. VG/VG. Gray and color illustrated dustjacket over black cloth. 182 pp. 22 color, 208 bw plates. Issued in conjunction with a 1986-1988 exhibition series of prints rendered by American pop artist Jim Dine (b. 1935). With essays by Ellen G. D'Oench and Jean E. Feinberg. The illustrated catalogue raisonne presents 206 pieces. Includes chronology and selected bibliography. "Dine's serial imagery, rooted in Pop origins but ever-evolving, comes particularly alive in his graphic work. The book at hand is based on an exhibition but also serves as a catalogue raisonne of prints produced in those years. The initial essays detail Dine's varied printmaking processes and each catalog entry provides essential illustrated provenance information; this balance of treatment renders the book an excellent source for studio or art historical study. Recommended for art collections, especially because recent works on the artist emphasize his painterly production." --Review from Paula A. Baxter, Museum of Modern Art Library, New York published in Library Journal.
