Lithograph. Signed by the artist, dated 1972, and annotated Trial Proof lower center in pencil. This work is unique. This trial proof was pinned up by the artist leaving a single pinhole on upper and lower left corners, and several pinholes on upper and lower right corners, as photographed.

This unique Jim Dine print features the artist’s iconic heart motif against a cosmic field of crimson, grey, black, pink, yellow, and purple. Spatters of ink and organic shapes form a soft galaxy behind Dine’s handwritten text “Emma Bovary.” Emma Bovary was the eponymous heroine of Gustave Flaubert’s first novel.

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.
