Note:  Dine first started depicting the image of the robe in 1964, he worked on the subject for 30 years. Although often associated with both Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism, Jim Dine did not identify with a specific movement, producing a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, works on paper, sculpture, poetry, and performances. Emerging as a pioneer (together with Alan Kaprow ,  Claes Oldenburg and Robert Whitman of New York’s Happenings of the 1960s, Dine would carry the spontaneous energy of this movement throughout his style, which emphasised the exploration of everyday life. Personally significant objects were Dine’s primary motifs, as in his iconic series of hearts and robes. He championed a return to figuration after a period of more concept-dominated works, and is considered an important figure in Neo-Dad and a forerunner of Neo-Expressionism
