Jim Dine: Prints
November 23, 2012
The Long Beach Museum of Art presents prints by Jim Dine (born 1935) selected from the Jordan D. Schnitzer collection and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. The selection exemplifies Dine's interest in printmaking over a span of years from 1965 to 2010. The printmaking processes he employs include screenprint, etching, lithography, copperplate, woodcut, drypoint, aquatint and digital printing, often in combination. Many of the prints are enhanced with collage and watercolor. A master printmaker, Dine makes continually fresh and intellectually stimulating images in his often autobiographical iconography where a robe can be a self-portrait.
