Art by Robert Indiana
Art (1972) by Robert Indiana.
Robert Indiana’s sculpture ART, combines several of Indiana’s signature stylistic elements, blending language and image together with hard-edge line and pure color.
Indiana first developed his distinctive interpretation of ART in 1970 as a design for a museum poster for the exhibition “American Art Since 1960” at the Princeton University Art Museum.
ART made its debut as a sculpture in his 1972 solo exhibition at the Denise René Gallery in New York.
The exhibition was Indiana’s first solo exhibition in New York since his famed 1966 LOVE show at the Stable Gallery six years earlier, and through its choice of works was intended to provide a major statement on Indiana’s achievements as well as point to the new directions his art was taking.
