        Schweizer Berglandschaft mit wanderndem Paar und zwei Ziegen.

      . Aquarell und Feder in Grau, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: C & I Honig (vgl. W.A. Churchill, Watermarks in Paper. Nieuwekoop de Graaf Publishers, 1990 (Reprint), Nr. 99), links unten signiert und datiert "(D)uncker del: 1775". 27,8:21,8 cm. - Löchlein innerhalb der Darstellung restauriert, rechte untere Ecke ergänzt. Provenienz: Hess. Privatbesitz.. Gefördert - wie Jakob Philipp Hackert auch - vom Bruder der Mutter, Baron Adolf Friedrich Olthof in Stralsund. Hackert unterrichtet Dunker und beide reisen 1765 nach Paris zur weiteren Ausbildung. Im Hause Johann Georg Willes, wo er verkehrt, knüpft Dunker Freundschaft mit den Schweizer Künstlern Sigmund Freudenberger,Johann Weber und Adrian Zingg. 1772 verläßt Dunker Paris, geht nach Basel, um dort als Reproduktionsstecher tätig zu sein, was ihn nicht befriedigt. 1773 besucht er seinen Freund S. Freudenberger in Bern, der ihn anregt, für die zahlreichen Kunstliebhaber in Bern Zeichnungen von der näheren Umgebung der Stadt anzufertigen. 1775 heiratet Dunker eine Bernerin, das Paar hat 15 Kinder, von denen allerdings 9 früh sterben. Die Folgen der Revolution in Frankreich wirken sich auch auf die Nachbarländer aus. In der Schweiz geht der blühende Tourismus zurück und die Auftragslage verschlechtert sich für Dunker und andere rapide. Er stirbt völlig verarmt in Bern. Mehrere vergleichbare Arbeiten Dunkers sind abgebildet in: Katalog "Balthasar Anton Dunker 1746 - 1807". Bern, Kunstmuseum, 1990/91.

        Biotherm (for Bill Berkson). [Together with a booklet] "Companion to Biotherm" (for Bill Berkson)

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1990. First edition. 44 loose sheets in red silk clamshell box; text bound in stitched paper wrappers in pocket of portfolio. A near fine copy, contents fine but for crease on half-title, in a clamshell box with a soil spot on front cover and faint edge wear to corners; booklet is a fine copy. Folio. Bill Berkson, essay. Illus. with 42 lithographs. No. 36 of 150 copies (of a total edition of 180), signed by Dine. "'Biotherm' is the last long poem of Frank O'Hara, whose accidental death in 1966 at age forty deprived America of one of its most vital and innovative poets. The poet and critic Bill Berkson, to whom the poem is addressed, provided an essay and compiled a glossary to explicate the references in the poem and to recount the circumstances of its writing. The artist Jim Dine knew O'Hara and admired his work. Challenged by O'Hara's brilliant experimentation in 'Biotherm', Dine's prints pay a vibrant homage to the poet and engage themes in the poem. Biotherm, a true livre d'artiste, is the sixth collaboration between Jim Dine and Andrew Hoyem" (Arion Press catalogue).
