Jim Dine Hearts is one of the most beloved themes, central to the artist’s historical body of work.

While hearts are universally recognizable, within contemporary art history, Jim Dine has laid undisputed claim to the shape, suggesting boundless possibilities endowed with complex meaning.

Together with other everyday forms, including bathrobes and tools, Dine’s work is often placed within the realm of Pop Art. While the subjects of his work are taken from popular sources, they do not serve the same ironic sensibility. Instead, they are invested with rich personal significance through the artist’s tactile brushwork, inventive printmaking techniques, and monumental cast sculptures.

A self-described romantic artist, Dine has embraced the heart as a template through which he can explore relationships of color, texture, and composition. Dine’s dynamic repetition of a condensed visual vocabulary has redefined the once-common heart as a personal symbol for the artist.
