CONTACT GALLERY FOR PRICE
A 1983 printing - signed TWICE by Robert Indiana, with an inscription bearing two small drawings.
It is exceptionally inscribed in marker at the bottom front "For Frank, Xmas 1990", and signed by Robert Indiana.
On the back, Robert Indiana further inscribed the work, with the text "Star of Hope, Vinalhaven, 25 XII 90, for Brother Frank, love, R. Indiana" - done boldly with black marker. The artist drew the image of a STAR near the text "Star of Hope", and the dedication LOVE, is written as a sculpture/drawing in the artist's inimitable hand.
This work was a personal gift of the artist to his neighbor and close friend Frank Wall, who lived near Vinalhaven, Robert Indiana's famous retreat.
This rare, uniquely inscribed work, is signed twice by Robert Indiana: once on the front, and once on the back, along with a dedication on each side, bearing Robert Indiana's trademark star and love drawings.
The work is held in its original black frame, matted, under plexiglass. The print measures 14 square inches; the frame is 21 square inches. The vintage frame has some agewear and bumping, etc. but the print appears in excellent condition. Not examined out of frame.
A unique and valuable collectors item, for true Robert Indiana fans: this silkscreen bears a message of brotherly love "Yield Brother", and it's inscription bears a similar message "For Brother Frank".
Signature: hand signed, dated and inscribed (recto); hand signed, dated and inscribed again (verso of the frame) with a unique LOVE drawing by Robert Indiana
Provenance: This work was originally a gift of the artist to his good friend and neighbor near Vinalhaven, Maine, Frank Wall.
