Robert Indiana: Hard Edge
Paul Kasmin Gallery published this book in 2009 to outline Robert Indiana’s major works and provide an insightful view through an essay by Adrian Dannatt. His iconic Pop image Love which the Museum of Modern Art originally commissioned as a Christmas card in 1964 is one of his most recognized artworks. Appealing to a wide range of audience from museum goers to academic idealists, Love has been reproduced widely in prints, political banners, stamps, and the equally iconic sculptures.
This volume is published in honor of the artist's recent eightieth birthday and provides an intriguing look at his large scale metal sculpture works through the high quality, colored images. Robert Indiana was born Robert Clark in Indiana in 1928 and took his home state’s name after moving to New York in 1954. He became known in the early 1960s for his hard-edged abstract paintings featuring numbers, text, and symbols.
