Robert Indiana’s 'LOVE' began as a simple Christmas card design for friends and has slowly become one of the most recognizable images in the art world. His technique is bold and visually stimulating, elevating simple text and colloquialisms in order to merge the personal and the public, the visual and the verbal. A miniature version of the sculpture that sits on the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana, this brushed aluminum paperweight commemorates the artist most iconic design.

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.
