MODERN & POSTWAR ARTISTS
1928 - 2018
One of the central figures of the Pop Art movement, Robert Indiana takes his inspiration from commercial signs, claiming: “There are more signs than trees in America. There are more signs than leaves. So I think of myself as a painter of American landscape.”
He is most famous for his “LOVE” paintings and sculptures, first produced in the 1960s. Creating a block out of the word he has effectively inserted his own sign into the mix.
