Jim Dine
Double Silver Point Robes

1964

About the Item

A mixed media artwork by Jim Dine. A silverpoint and acrylic on 2 joined canvases, wood, knife, and string in artist's frame work by Post War artist Jim Dine. "Double Silver Point Robes" depicts the outline of two robes in silverpoint on a white acrylic painted ground. Jim Dine's use of his favorite bathrobe, a frequent image in his works, is a self portrait which connects an everyday object and imbues it with meaning. This Robe painting was part of the first exhibition of Robe paintings at Sidney Janis Gallery in 1964. This drawing is a silverpoint, meaning a piece of silver was used as the drawing instrument. Double Silver Point Robes pays homage to both Leonardo Da Vinci and Marcel Duchamp: Leonardo used silverpoint extensively in his drawings, and Duchamp utilized the ready-made, or found object. Provenance: Sidney Janis Gallery, New York Priviate Collection, acquired from the above Private Collection, by descent from the above

    Acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Signed, titled, and dated verso. 40 x 76.5 in. 41.75 x 78.25 in. (framed) Custom framed in a solid, unfinished maple floater. Provenance Watson/de Nagy & Company, Houston Private Collection, New York Sherron Francis was born in 1940, in Downers Grove, IL outside of Chicago. She originally enrolled at the University of Oklahoma, but later transferred to the Kansas City Art Institute to focus more on art. Initially, Francis' practice was focused on figurative art, with visiting professor and renowned modern realist Philip Pearlstein remarking on Francis’ draftsman acumen. In the early 1960s, art dealers and gallerists from New York would visit the Institute to entice promising artists by offering scholarships and financial aid. Because such financial arrangements were only made for men, Francis had to persuade the school's leadership to allow for women to also be eligible for merit-based aid. Her advocacy was successful, and she ultimately graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1963. She would then proceed to obtain her MFA from the University of Indiana, before assuming a teaching position at Eastern Michigan University. In 1968, with only $300 on hand, Francis moved to 16 Waverly Place in SoHo, New York. The neighborhood was a hotbed for young AbEx artists of the day, and she quickly befriended the likes of Peter Reginato, Walter Darby Bannard, Michael Steiner, Peter Young, Peter Bradley...
