This Jim Dine Robe was specially created by Jim Dine to raise campaign funds for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in honor of Bill Clinton, prior to his election as President.
Although Jim Dine has created many Robes over the years, the Bill Clinton robe has the impact and authority of the Artist's larger Works, reduced to a Miniature size.
