[ARTIST'S BOOK] --DINE, Jim (b. 1945). Glyptotek. New York and London: Pace Editions and Waddington Graphics, 1988.
Large folio. Title-page print, 40 intaglio prints from copper plates by Jim Dine. Original publisher's cloth; original slipcase.
LIMITED EDITION, number 30 of 90 copies SIGNED BY DINE. The intaglio plates are Dine's interpretations of the classical sculpture in the Glyptotek in Munich. "These are not academic studies of stone sculptures. Rather than recording them as ancient carvings, through his graphic transformation Dine willed them back to their original state of living beings... The urgency of the line, the exaggerated tonal variations, the large scale, and the obvious link to the great monuments in Western art history result in an expressive power that hits the viewer with full force" (Feinberg, Dine, p. 87).
