Robert Indiana, one of America's most important 20th century artists, is a seminal icon of Pop Art. Robert Indiana was born in New Castle, Indiana. He graduated from Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis. He moved to New York City in 1954 and joined the Pop Art movement, using distinctive imagery drawing on commercial art using an existentialism that gradually moved toward what Indiana calls "sculptural poems".  Mr. Indiana's works are in important collections on five continents, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum. In the 1960's, Robert Indiana's "Love" print, which was originally a Christmas card for MOMA (you can see a little Christmas Tree embedded in the letter "V", seized the country as an emblem of the peace movement. In the 1990's, Indiana was asked to recreate his love image in different colors.
