The artist Jim Dine recalled first seeing Disney’s second animated feature, Pinocchio, at the age of six. Based on the 1883 book by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi, it traces the adventures of a wooden puppet who becomes a real boy. Its striking imagery and moralistic message left a strong impression on Dine, who returned to its subject matter in his work for more than 30 years, seeing it as more than a child’s fairy tale, but as a metaphor for the creation of art.
