The artist, who was born in Cincinnati in 1935, moved to New York in 1959. Along with Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Whitman, he was a pioneer of the Happenings movement. He also played a vital part in the development of Pop art in the 1960s.
During Dine’s 60-year career, his work has been highlighted in solo exhibitions in museums in Europe and the United States, including significant retrospectives at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1970), Museum of Modern Art (1978), and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (1999); the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (1984-85), and National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (2004).
