Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg: Transformation of the Ordinary

Jim Dine and Claes OLdenburg have been linked since the early 1960s, when they both participated in "Happenings" on New York's Lower East Side. Because they were mutually inspired by objects from the street, both were included in several early exhibitions of Pop Art. Dine and Oldenburg (now 78 and 85 respectively) are known internationally for their transformations of household items into lifelike objects with monumental qualities. This selection features apporximately 20 prints in which the artists, with characteristic wit and introspction, give life to the inanimate.
