Original exhibition poster for Jim Dine’s 1973 show at Galerie Gerald Cramer, replicating Dine’s lithograph Silhouette Boots on Brown Paper, 1972. The perfect vintage font in kelly green and the speckled silhouette of smart cowboy boots printed in rich brown practically vibrate against each other. Text reads: gravures originales / livres illustres – 1960 – 1972 / 13 rue de chantepoulet geneve / novembre 1972-janvier 1973 / galerie gerald cramer. Gerald Cramer was a legendary Swiss gallerist and publisher who ran Galerie Kramer in Geneva, Switzerland for over 40 years, working with artists such as Braque, Miro, Chagall, Henry Moore and Max Ernst. This poster is not previously owned and has been stored in an archive since its publication.


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.
