Lot 301: Jim Dine

The Cellist (from Eight Sheets from an Undefined Novel)

1976
Etching with hand painting and watercolor
Edition of 30 plus proofs
Signed, dated, and inscribed
41.75" x 31"
In the Eight Sheets from an Undefined Novel series, Dine used scratched, unpolished roofer's copper for his plates. Dine worked directly on the plate surface with drypoint, soft ground, and hard ground etching techniques through approximately 10 states. After the BAT impression had been pulled, the coppery plates were all steel faced to prevent breakdown of the subtle soft ground textures during editioning. This specific example is the rare large-margined first edition, not the later second edition with small margins.
Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000
Inventory Id: 7300
