Robert Indiana: New Perspectives
Self-described as an "American painter of signs," Robert Indiana (born 1928) is best known for his iconic rendition of the word "love." Over the past 50 years Indiana has created a major body of work that spans the movements of assemblage, hard-edged abstraction and Pop art. Edited by Allison Unruh, this book surveys his career from the early 1960s to the present, also convening new scholarship by writers such as Thomas Crow and Robert Storr. Addressing topics ranging from Indiana's politically engaged works, his formative years in the Coentie's Slip artistic community, Indiana's place within Pop and his allegorical depictions of gender and family, this book re-assesses some of his most significant works and sheds light on his place in the history of art.
