Artifex Press is pleased to announce that it will be offering free access to the Jim Dine Catalogue Raisonné, edited by Sara K. Davidson, beginning today, March 1, and running through the end of April.

Jim Dine: Sculpture, 1983-present is the definitive publication of three-dimensional works created by the artist since 1983, the period during which he has worked extensively with Walla Walla Foundry in Washington. The catalogue raisonné details the artist’s complete output of freestanding sculpture from these years—more than 300 original works. It lists comprehensive information for individual casts within editions, of which there are approximately 900 in total, and it has been regularly updated with information about new works since its initial publication in 2013. The catalogue also includes nearly three dozen exclusive videos of the artist in conversation with Editor Sara K. Davidson, discussing his body of work.

The Jim Dine Catalogue Raisonné will be available for free through the end of April 2021, as part of Artifex Press’s ongoing effort to provide access to its catalogues at a time when many libraries and institutions are closed to the public to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Artifex Press is also pleased to announce that the second volume of the Chuck Close Catalogue Raisonné, Chuck Close: Works on Paper, will be published this spring. The volume, which comprises approximately 200 works spanning five decades of the artist's career, complements Chuck Close: Paintings, giving an even deeper look into his image-making process. Further details on the new publication will be announced in the coming weeks.
