> DESCRIPTION

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. Dine and Oldenburg (now 78 and 84, respectively) are known internationally for their transformations of household items into lifelike objects with monumental qualities. This selection features approximately 20 prints in which the artists, with characteristic wit and introspection, give life to the inanimate.
