Jim Dine

Artist Influence and Impact on HistoryBelieve it or not, Jim's influence was not a person... it was in fact a type of art. Let me explain a little bit more. Jim Dine was heavily influenced by Greek and Roman sculpture. More specifically from the Glyptopek Museum in Munich. But, he did look to Paul Cezanne for inpsiration. He brought the dead stone sculptures to life with his vigorous, playful attitude. He inspired a few people including Donald Baechler. I have also seen many upcoming adolescent artists inspired by him.

Artist LifeJames "Jim" Dine was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on June 16th, 1935. His paretns' names are Stanley and Eunice. He also has one brother named Tom. Jim actually grew up with a learning disorder. Him and his family are Jewish immigrants. He graduated from Ohio University, but he went to three different schools prior to graduating. Once he gratudated, he became involved with a circle of of artists, including Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Rauschenburg.


Artist Quote"I have come to terms with a lot of things, because, when all's said and done, there's really very little one can do about a lot of things. You just accept them. The point is you just have to keep on working and you just have to keep on living."

Artist StyleJim Dine's famous style is pop art. Bright colors, geometrical shapes, you name it. Pop art is art based on modern popular culture and the mass media, esp. as a critical or ironic comment on traditional fine art values. I'm painting an image that shows his love of hearts, but it also involves botanical. Almost all of his painting include hearts. This painting is considered pop art. The name of the painting is Botanical Drawing. The style is pop art like almost all the rest ofd his work.
