“I don’t think any other decade will mean the same thing to me as the ’60s did,” Robert Indiana once said.

Robert Indiana is most famous for his iconic “LOVE” image, which has appeared across media including sculptures, prints, and paintings and epitomizes the artist’s graphic, predominantly text-based Pop art practice. Throughout his career, Indiana reconfigured the aesthetics of American advertisements, slogans, and commercial logos into bright, pared-down works that comment on national identity and the power of language. Indiana studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, and Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland before moving to New York and becoming involved with avant-garde artists including Ellsworth Kelly and Agnes Martin. His paintings and sculptures regularly sell for seven figures on the secondary market. Indiana’s work has been exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, and Zürich, among other cities, and belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Stedelijk Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
