Born in Cincinnati, Ohio; lives in New York, New York, and Walla Walla, Washington.
Over the span of his career, Jim Dine has worked in an expansive range of media—painting, performance, drawing, poetry, printmaking, book design, sculpture, and photography. He is among America’s greatest living draftsmen, and his images of tools, large-scale nudes, self-portraits, and studies from nature are among the most accomplished renderings of our time. Portraits, one of Dine's most frequent subjects, are often suggested by items of clothing and other objects. His art has been the subject of thousands of individual and group shows and is in the permanent collections of major museums around the world.
