Jim Dine was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at the University of Cincinnati and at the Boston School of Fine and Applied Arts. In 1957, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Ohio University, Athens. He moved to New York in 1959. Dine produced his first Happenings with Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow at the Judson Gallery, New York and had his first one-man exhibition at the Reuben Gallery, New York. Between 1960-1965 he had various guest professorships, including Yale University, New Haven, and Oberlin College. Since 1967 he has taught at the College of Architecture, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. He lives in New York and London. This print, Calico, is typical of Dine's imagery. He is known for combining handwritten texts and words with everyday objects set against undefined backgrounds. The objects were both commonplace and personal, both poetic and ironic, reflecting his own feelings about life.
