Woodcut Self-Portrait #3

Woodcut Self-Portrait #3


Jim Dine

(American, b. 1935)


John L. Severance Fund 1994.81

Catalogue raisonné: Not in Williams College Catalogue



Some of Dine's most powerful and penetrating works from the 1970s are self-portraits and portraits of his wife, Nancy. An accomplished printmaker, Dine carved the block of wood in an aggressive manner, chiseling and gouging and allowing the grain to give texture to the image. Dine never printed an edition of Woodcut Self-Portrait #3; this is a unique impression
