Artist Robert Indiana

Artist’s Biography

1928
Born: New Castle, Indiana, U.S.A.

1953
In 1953, scholarships took him to the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine and then on to Scotland, to the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art.

1956
He befriended the young Ellsworth Kelly, who in 1956 found him an inexpensive downtown studio at 31 Coenties Slip, a former shipping warehouse near the Brooklyn Bridge.

1961
The first major break in his career came when The Museum of Modern Art included his work in its 1961 exhibition “Art of Assemblage.”

1962
The second break came when The Museum of Modern Art purchased his 1961 painting “The American Dream #1.” The same year Indiana had his first solo show at the Stable Gallery.

1964
He appeared in the Andy Warhol film “Eat”.

1970
He received an Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts Degree from Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA.

1973
He designed the immensely popular multi – coloured “Love” on a United States postage stamp.

1977
He was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Fine Arts by the University of Indiana, Bloomington.

1981
He received an Honorary Doctoral Degree from Colby College, Waterville, MA.

1995
He created a “Heliotherapy Love” series of 300 silk screen prints signed and numbered by the artist, which surrounds the iconic love image in a bright yellow border. These prints are the largest official printed version of the Love image.

2008
Indiana created an image similar to his iconic LOVE but this time showcasing the word “HOPE”, and donated all proceeds from the sale of reproductions of his image to Democrat Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, raising in excess of $1,000,000.

2013
The Whitney Museum of American Art presented a major retrospective of his work.

Indiana lives and works in Vinalhaven, Maine, USA
