Jim Dine (American, b. 1935)

Self Portrait in a Ski Hat/A Suite of All Four States, 1974, edition sizes from 20 to 40, published by Petersburg Press, New York (Williams College, 176-179). Each signed, dated, and numbered "13...Jim Dine 1974" in pencil along lower edge. Etchings (two with hand-coloring) on various papers, plate sizes 8 3/4 x 11 1/2 in. (22.0 x 29.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Full sheets with most edges deckled, some with gentle toning, staining and/or fox marks, floated within the frames, not examined out of frames.

N.B. This suite uses the same plate, reworked for each state, to begin with a self portrait which is slowly overgrown by tulips. Dine is known for his inventive printmaking techniques, including his use of power tools. In this suite he used an oscillating sander to remove marks from state to state.
Estimate $2,000-3,000
