Important Pop Artists Andy Warhol Roy Lichtenstein What Popular Objects are these artists referencing?
Exploring the same popular theme… in different ways. What is the same about each robe? What has the artist changed?
Jim Dine quotes “I appropriate things and make them mine. I’m a different person when I come back to them 20 years later, but they’re still mine.” (In this case, appropriate means to borrow or use. For example, Ms. Sirna appropriated some of of Mrs. Ragan’s sewing supplies.) “For me, drawing is everything.. because it informs everything. It even informs my poetry. It’s the way I begin everything.” What objects does Dine appropriate in his work? How does Jim Dine plan his artwork?
