A reassessment of the works by the American painter of signs and symbols

While best known for his iconic work LOVE, Robert Indiana (*1928 in New Castle, Indiana) has created a major body of work over the past fifty years that, besides various genres, spans different art movements, such assemblage, hard edge, abstraction, and Pop Art. This book brings together recent scholarly insight into this important artist, who has referred to himself as an "American painter of signs." It addresses themes ranging from Indiana's politically engaged works, his formative years in the unique artistic community of Coenties Slip in downtown Manhattan, and his place within the Pop discourse to his allegorical depictions of gender and family. Thus, this book reassesses some of Indiana's most significant works and sheds light on his place in the history of art.

Pop Art

Whether it´s Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, or Robert Rauschenberg, no other conceptual movement in modern twentieth-century art history has been such a crucial influence on our ideas of aesthetics, design, and the American way of life as Pop Art.
