Original poster produced on the occasion of Jim Dine’s 1971 exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. This vintage poster reproduces the artist’s lithograph The Red Bandana: a classic bandana sketched in black with a beautifully reticulated wash of red, accompanied by lively sprays of ink. The rounded typeface is pure retro delight.
Jim Dine’s careful depiction of everyday objects imbues them with life: tools, hearts, robes, and hearts serve as frameworks for formal experimentation and as vessels for meaning. Here, the artist delights in minimalism: a scarf as Color Field painting, Rothko’s Americana. Below the sketch, Dine’s breezy cursive reads “the red bandana”.
