A piece by famous American pop art artist Robert Indiana, who played a central role in the development of assemblage art, hard-edge painting. As poet Robert Creeley wrote the artist: "He has used the figure of language and number to echo endlessly the paradigms of human emotions and made LOVE an international sign of transcendent power". The painting is the part of the Love series, which made him famous in 1966. The word love first appeared in the painting 4-Star Love (1961). Love was a central and very spiritually significant theme for Indiana.
