Friends since the early 1960s, photographer Lee Friedlander and painter Jim Dine formed an early bond when Friedlander gave Dine a photograph he made on a trip to Cincinnati— not realizing Dine had been raised there. Since then, both artists have established long distinguished careers in photography and in painting, respectively. 

While similarities between the work of these two giants of 20th century visual art may not at first be apparent, they share an eye for nuance and detail. As the combinations of photographs and etchings found in Work from the Same House (a collaborative portfolio created by the artists in 1969) attest, the details are the primary subject of each’s work. The interesting and sometimes comic pairings found in Work from the Same House will challenge Figge visitors to see what the artist’s see!
