ROBERT INDIANA, PARIS REVIEW, 1965
Publisher: Paris Review, New York
Printer: Neville Powers and Steve Poleskie, Chiron Press, New York
This dramatic early work was created in 1965 for The Paris Review, which commissioned a group of major contemporary artists for a series of prints to publicize the magazine and provide financial support for its literary endeavors. In addition to Indiana, artists like Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, and Alex Katz donated signed, limited editions. Years later, other artists including Louise Bourgeois and Ed Ruscha would participate as well. This long sold-out screenprint from the 1960s, one of the most desirable and influential eras in Pop Art history. Indiana is one of the last living American Pop Art legends and was recently the subject of a major 2013 retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art entitled Beyond Love.
