Robert Indiana’s “LOVE” began as a simple Christmas card design for friends, but has since become one of the most iconic motifs of contemporary art. His technique is bold and visually engaging, elevating simple text in a manner that merges the personal and the public, the visual and the verbal. The classic Love Rug translates the artist’s signature image into wool.

Born Robert Clark, Robert Indiana (American, 1928-2018) was a painter, sculptor, and printmaker. Declaring himself a “sign painter,” the center of Indiana’s practice revolved around assembling wooden sculptures from found materials and stenciling painted words onto them. Nevertheless, Robert Indiana’s work has become extremely popular in pop culture, and is characterized by “typically” American subject matter, bright colors, and clearly defined contours.
