About the Item

Limited edition 'Pinocchio' screen print by Pop Art icon, Jim Dine (b. 1935) Published by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts 41 x 29.5 inches in black frame Seven color screen print and woodcut Signed and editioned by the artist Edition 25/118 Excellent condition and ready to hang Jim Dine reinterprets Carlo Collodi's 'Pinocchio' with this series of screen prints published by Lincoln Center. The Pinocchio motif first appeared in Dine's work in 1998 and became a fascination of the artist's. He explains, "Thanks to Carlo Collodi, the real creator of Pinocchio, I have for many years been able to live thru the wooden boy.... His poor burned feet, his misguided judgment, his vanity about his large nose, his temporary donkey ears all add up to the real sum of his parts. In the end it is his great heart that holds me." Dine also thought the idea of a wooden object becoming human acts as a metaphor for art and represents the "ultimate alchemical transformation". He later made a self-portrait of himself as Geppetto, making reference to the artist as creator. The seven color screen print is signed a dated by the artist. It's completed with a black frame, 8 ply white mat, and non-glare glass. The piece is in excellent condition and ready to hang. About the artist: Considered a pioneer of both the Happenings and Pop art in the 1960s, Jim Dine is known merging familiar objects from popular culture with autobiographical content to make work distinguished by its bold, graphic style. Often repeating certain generic themes and motifs—such as hearts, skulls, and tools (as well as the Disney version of Pinocchio)—in multiple forms and mediums, his interest in seriality and the everyday are emblematic of the Pop style, yet Dine's work is simultaneously distinguished by his masterful draftsmanship. In 1962, Dine was one of eight artists—along with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha—included in the seminal New Paintings of Common Objects exhibition curated by Walter Hopps at the Pasadena Art Museum (now the Norton Simon Museum), which is often credited with defining the then-emerging field of Pop art. The next year, his work was exhibited in Six Painters and the Object at the Guggenheim Museum, curated by Lawrence Alloway, which presented the work of six artists who would come to be among the most celebrated figures in postwar American art: Dine, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, and Andy Warhol. Since his first exhibitions at the Judson Gallery in downtown New York in 1959, Dine's work has been exhibited regularly at major museums and galleries internationally. In addition to notable surveys of Pop art, Dine has been included in significant international shows such as Documenta 4 in 1967, Documenta 5 in 1972, and Documenta 6 in 1977, the Venice Biennale in 1964 and 1997, as well as the 1973 Whitney Biennial and its precursor, the Whitney Annual, in 1965, 1966, 1967, and 1969. Dine has been the subject of hundreds of solo shows, including exhibitions at the Morgan Library and Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the National Gallery of Art in 2004.

  • Deluxe Signed Edition of Film Festival Lincoln Center (Feldman & Schellmann, II.
    By Andy Warhol
    Located in New York, NY
    Andy Warhol Deluxe Signed Edition of Film Festival Lincoln Center (Feldman & Schellmann, II.19), 1967 Silkscreen, die-cut on opaque acrylic Edition 2/200 (Signed and numbered on the back with engraving pen) Hand-signed by artist, As this work was done on acrylic, Warhol signed and numbered it by hand on verso with an engraving needle. Stamped and dated with copyright Frame included: Elegantly framed in a museum quality wood frame with UV plexiglass. A die-cut window has been created in the back of the frame to reveal Warhol's incised signature and edition Publisher: Leo Castelli, New York Printer: Chiron Press, New York Catalogue Raisonne: Feldman & Schellmann, II.19 This work is often hung and displayed both vertically and horizontally - see photos for inspiration This work is one of only 200 done on opaque acrylic rather than wove paper, signed and numbered on the opaque acrylic by Andy Warhol with an engraving pen. (Separately, there was an unsigned edition of 500 on wove paper). What distinguishes this rare, extremely desirable signed edition of 200, other than that it is signed and numbered by hand by Andy Warhol, is that the black graphic text FIFTH NEW YORK is placed directly over the text Film Festival of Lincoln Center; whereas in the edition of 500, the text black text FIFTH NEW YORK is placed on top of the white text. An innovative feature that appears in this special edition is a perforated line running across the surface of the print, at its triangular cut out sides, mimicking the tear line present in real commercial movie admissions tickets. Chiron Press commissioned by Lincoln Center, devised a special process expressly to imprint the edition with this perforation using a die cut stamp. This work is quintessential early Warhol, with characteristic bright neon colors, featuring text, along with the artist's very recognizable flower motif. The Lincoln Center ticket simultaneously reflects Warhol's central preoccupations with commercial culture (the ticket is, par excellence, an object that is bought and sold), as well as his fascination with Hollywood - as the ticket, quite literally, represents an entree into the world of film. Warhol's appropriation of the flower - an otherwise sentimental and decorative motif, transforming it into a symbol of the Pop Art movement, is a hallmark of his early style and innovations. Andy Warhol's vibrant vintage color silkscreen Lincoln Center Ticket from the fabulous Sixties is considered one of the more iconic and recognizable Warhol images. It is also one of Warhol's earliest prints. The Vera List...

  • MOONWALK 1970 Color Silkscreen Screenprint Acrylic Plexiglass Mod Space Art
    By Lowell Nesbitt
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Space Race Silkscreen on Acrylic hand signed and dated 1970, MOON WALK, color screenprint on Plexiglas depicting the moon landing, from the numbered edition of 150, size 30 x 30” Lowell Blair Nesbitt is an American painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor. Although he worked in a variety of media and covered a wide range of subjects throughout his career, he is best known for his large, Photorealist botanical paintings. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1933, Nesbitt earned a degree from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Later, he also studied at London’s Royal Academy of Arts. Working in stained glass and etching and also producing abstract paintings in his early career, a 1962 encounter with artist Robert Indiana led him to steer his aesthetic toward realism. Though he held his first solo show at the Baltimore Museum of Art in 1958, it was his 1964 debut at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. that would truly bring him to the attention of the art world. In this exhibit, his botanical series of paintings, drawings, and prints captivated the art world and public alike. The game-changing Corcoran Gallery show would send his career down the trajectory of sustained success. In 1976, Nesbitt moved from his New York City West 14th Street studio to a massive space located at 389 West 12th Street. The 12,500 square foot living and workspace supplied ample room for creating his enormous paintings...
