Item description for Jim Dine: Aldo et Moi by Jim Dine...
Aldo et Moi is a record of the 115 etchings Jim Dine made between 1975 and 1997 in collaboration with the famous printer Aldo Crommelynck in Paris. Crommelynck has worked with many American artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Jasper Johns, Robert Morris and Ed Ruscha, but his relationship with Dine has proved especially durable and fruitful. Dine painted "The Crommelynck Gate," as well as a sculpture of the same name, in his honor, and credits him as a teacher: "My relationship with Aldo Crommelynck has been a little different in that he really teaches technique more than anyone else he has a vast vocabulary of the process." In celebration of this happy association, Jim Dine has donated to the Bibliotheque Nationale de France a complete set of prints; the library will mount an exhibit of this donation in April, 2007. Aldo et Moi is a warm-hearted tribute to two masters of contemporary printmaking, and complements previous Steidl titles on Dine, such as Birds, The Photographs, This Goofy Life of Constant Mourning, Drawings of Jim Dine, Entrada Drive, Pinocchio and his last book, L'Odysee de Jim Dine.
