“LOVE” is a pop art imagery by Robert Indiana (Died May 2018). It was originally designed as a Christmas card commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art in 1965 and was later on created as a sculpture made of COR-TEN steel and now displayed in Indiana at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
R. Indiana’s style revolves around Americana, signage, and the power of ordinary words with hard-edge abstraction of the day, and included political and social overtones.
The artwork has been reproduced on 330 million postage stamps that travelled around the world, which lead of unauthorized recreation, distribution, commercialization and monetization, of which he never got commissioned for.
He has been a prominent and respectable figure in the world of modern art and his artworks were exhibited alongside Andy Warhol at the World’s Fair in Queens.
Nonetheless, his iconic artwork has been one of the most reproduced image in the modern era, which most of the people are familiar with.
