Jim Dine: the Glyptotek Drawings/ Jim Dine
On visiting the Glyptothek in Munich in 1984, Jim Dine was inspired to create a book of prints that would be his own Glyptothek. In the winters of 1987 and 1988 in Venice, Dine began realising this wish, making forty drawings in preparation for the prints. The Glyptotek Drawings shows the drawings in their entirety - rigorous creations on translucent paper that incorporate media such as charcoal, ink and pastel. This book presents an eloquent, stand-alone suite of drawings in Dine's oeuvre and evidences his ongoing engagement with antique art.
