‘More than popular images, I'm interested in personal images’ – Jim Dine, 1963.
The paintbrush, the artist’s most recognisable tool, became one of Jim Dine’s most frequently recurring subjects. Tools and paintbrushes had a personal significance for Dine, referring both to his practice as an artist and his family’s hardware store in Cincinnati, Ohio.
