The iconic LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana is almost as complex as the real thing. One of the most recognizable modern-day images this four-letter word with a forward-leaning “O” captures an important time during the Pop Art movement. Originally commissioned in 1965 by the Museum of Modern Art for its annual holiday card, LOVE has since appeared in prints, sculptures, banners, t-shirts and so much more. From the first “Love” stamp printed by the U.S. Postal Service in 1973 to the massive statue at Sixth Avenue and 55th Street in New York, many have argued that the popularity and widespread appropriation of Indiana’s design was partially responsible for driving the artist to retreat to the island of Vilhaven, Maine.
