Jim Dine’s “Fragile Boy” is a sly take on the famous puppet in the liminal state between being and being made out of wood. This work is  from his Pinocchio series, with added intimacy due to its unique background. Dine employed hand coloring after 8 litho layers were printed to achieve just the right saturation and highlighting of detail. Dine made a small edition of this print, only totaling 12 in the entire edition.

Jim Dine is one of the top contemporary artists in the US, and his works are included in major museums throughout the world.

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.
