Jim Dine began his career in the late 1950s and quickly joined the Pop Art movement. His work differed from other Pop artists as it possessed a painterly quality that contained an element of personal expression. In an interview with Art News magazine, Jim Dine said, “Pop Art is only one facet of my work. More than popular images, I’m interested in personal images.” Over the next 50 years, Dine developed an interest in figurative art. His vibrant hearts, robes and flowers became his signature works. His work is found in the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum. A special exhibition of his work, “Jim Dine Walking Memory,” was held at the Cincinnati Art Museum in October 1999 to January 2000.
