The Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation acquires over 800 prints by Jim Dine
Cristea Roberts Gallery is delighted to announce that the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, USA, has acquired a major archive of prints, dating from 1962 to 2020, by Jim Dine (b. 1935).
The acquisition transforms the Foundation’s holding of Dine’s art, which it has been collecting for over 20 years. Dine has built a career exploring and pushing the boundaries of printmaking, alongside his practice in other mediums. Now aged 86 years, he is one of the most important printmakers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The largest acquisition, ever, of Dine’s work includes etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, unique variants, studies and trial proofs. The works feature the artist’s iconic imagery of hearts, skulls, Pinocchio, Venus de Milo, tools and bathrobes, the latter two often appearing as autobiographical motifs.
