Marilyn '67

Robert Indiana
2008
Silkscreen
Edition of 50, signed
36.5036.50
Price: $4,000 USD

One of the central figures of the Pop Art movement, Robert Indiana takes his inspiration from typography found on signs, billboards, and commercial logos. It makes sense that  he thinks of himself as a painter of American landscape. Born Robert Earl Clark on September 13, 1928 in New Castle, IN, Indiana adopted the name of his home state and after serving in the military, took courses to complete his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1954. Later that year, he moved to New York, NY after travel and study in Europe. In the 1960s, Indiana began to paint single words, often composed of three or four letters, beginning the body of work for which he is best known. In this series he created his iconic LOVE image, with its bold stacked letterforms and tilted O, which has been translated into a US postage stamp in 1973 and into numerous large-scale steel sculptures across the world.
