Author Marco Livingstone, who has curated two Dine retrospectives and written about his art on numerous occasions, has documented and analyzed the evolution of both the man and his work. The book opens with a brief overview, from the experimental works of the late 1950s to the mature period inaugurated by Dine's return to life drawing in the mid-1970s, a development characterized by a consistent search for and development of an individual, highly personal voice. Livingstone then turns to a discussion of themes and practices that illuminate the art in unexpected ways.
