The Dartmouth Portraits aer reworked plates from an earlier drypoint self portrait series done in 1971. For the second set, Dine used the same plates, the same theme and, in most cases, a similar image size and position. The 1971 Self Portrait plates were effaced with an oscillating sander. Shadows of the earlier image remained, over which Dine drew and etched another self portrait on each of the plates. Adjacent impressions on each page of the catalogue were pulled from the same plate.

The Artist

Jim Dine

Jim Dine is an American pop artist who was born in Ohio in 1935 and was known for his painting, drawing, sculpting and printmaking. He is considered to be a part of the Neo-Dada movement, a style that opposed the emotional expressions of Abstract Impressionism and instead, denies aesthetics by using mundane subjects and focusing on performance. Dine was first recognised by the art industry when he displayed ‘Happenings’ a type of performance art in collaboration with the musician John Cage. In 1959, it was exhibited over six days in an environment or installation in New York City’s Reuben Gallery, where features of light, sound, projects and viewer participation all played a part in the display.
