Robert Indiana, LOVE


Originally named Robert Clark by his adoptive parents, artist Robert Indiana assumed his new name after moving to New York to start his career as an artist. As he came of age, the Pop Art Movement was emerging; it was a style that often included pop culture imagery to challenge the existing ideals of fine art. Indiana’s LOVE is a great example of how he incorporated cultural references into his work to address important social and political issues.
