Lot Details

In "LOVE," letters in simple block font stack together, the word reconstructed into two tiers and the "O" on a smooth slant. Adorned with a vibrant violet face and glossy red sides, immense block lettering constructs this emblem of American identity, emphasizing the nuanced accessibility of the concept for which it stands. An iconic work by Robert Indiana, this bold sculpture explores a strong element of the American Dream and validates the power of vernacular language in Pop Art.
