Jim Dine views himself less an exponent of Pop Art than as “a classic artist, who in the course of his career has tried out all the media: painting, drawing, all facets of the graphic arts, sculpture and has written books of poetry. In addition, there is the European influence – Dine lived in London for several years from 1967 [...] Dine did not want to be narrowed down to a specifically American Pop iconography; he has striven – unlike the Pop painters, if it can be put in such terms – for higher things.” (Ivo Kranzfelder, in: Künstler. Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, Munich 1996, p. 3). [NB].

Firmly mounted on backing paper at points on the reverse. The foil's lower left corner with crease marks. Upper left corner with minor crease mark and minimally shopworn respectively.
