Jim Dine (1935-) is a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist who uses images of everyday objects in his artwork. He adds a richness to the art through his personal passions and everyday experiences. His repeated use of familiar and personally significant objects, such as a robe, hands, tools, and hearts, is a signature of his art.
