The pop art legend Robert Indiana was born in New Castle / Indiana and lived since 1945 in New York. He collaborated with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichtenstein. His sculpture LOVE brought him world fame.
Robert Indiana began his striking drawing pictures with simple stencils designed to label transport crates. His works were characterized by meaningful words and bright colors characteristic of the artist's work.
LOVE became a topic of Indiana in 1966. His works include marble, steel, and aluminum sculptures, silkscreen prints, posters, tapestries, and even a LOVE stamp commissioned in 1973 by the US government. The typography of the work, with its tilted O, is one of the most frequently reproduced works of post-war art and was even affixed in 1991 by Indiana, in conjunction with the word "WALL," in red on the Berlin Wall.
His characteristic design elements were emblems, letters and numbers - signs with striking-symbolic appearance. Indiana's works are sold for $ 400,000, - and more. They are central items in the great collections of modernism around the world, from the Museum of Modern Art in New York to the Ludwig Museum in Cologne and many more. In Indianapolis, a whole museum is dedicated to his works.
