After graduating from Ohio University in 1958, Dine relocated to New York City and soon became an active participant of Pop art. Today he is recognized as one of the leading figures in Pop art alongside his friends from his early days in New York, Claes Oldenburg and Roy Lichtenstein.
Besides countless solo and group exhibitions, Dine has had retrospective exhibitions at the Isetan Museum Tokyo, Japan; the Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan; the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, New York and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, New York. His work resides in the permanent collections of many museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, New York.
Dine lived in London, England with his family in the late 1960s through the early 1970s and focused on honing both his printmaking and drawing skills. Swaying in the Florida Nights demonstrates the level of mastery Dine attained in printmaking. The trees swaying in the night appear almost figurative and express the artist’s personality.
