Robert Indiana



Robert Indiana (1928-2018) was a pre-eminent figure of American Pop art, best known for his iconic masterpiece "LOVE", which remains one of the most famous and sought-after artworks of the 20th century. 

Indiana's signature style fused Pop Art and Hard-Edged painting. His oeuvre consists of bold, simple subjects including numbers, symbols, or capitalized short words (i.e. EAT, HUG, LOVE) executed in vivid primary colors. 

Inspired by the mythology of the American dream, Indiana engaged with everyday objects, words, symbols, and commercial designs (like logos) and quickly became associated with the Pop Art movement. Somewhat surprisingly during his formative years he worked alongside Ellsworth Kelly and Jack Youngerman. 

Completed in vibrant color blocks of cobalt and orange, "Heptagon" confidently displays the number seven at the center of the work.  Numbers were a recurring point of interest for the artist who would reimagine single digits through various series and mediums. Indiana was also tremendously inspired by road signs and highway advertising. This work, whether overtly or unconsciously, recalls the logos of the "Gulf" and "76" gas stations. 

"Heptagon" perfectly encapsulates Indiana's distinct aesthetic and includes some of his most recognizable motifs: bold contrasting colors, a concentric circle, and curved text in his signature stencil font...and an allusion to road signs or advertising.    

Note: this piece is from the limited edition of 50, each hand-signed and hand-numbered by the artist. There is a larger edition that has neither. 

Indiana's works can be found in the permanent collections of the most prestigious institutions around the world including The Whitney (NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LA), Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), Albright-Knox Gallery (Buffalo), and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) among many others.
