What is there not to LOVE about this beautiful carpeted piece?!? * * Artist: Robert IndianaMedium: Serigraph on Decorative CarpetEdition: Out of 999Size: 23 5/8" x 23 5/8" * Condition: Excellent * Biography: * Robert Indiana (1928- ) was born Robert Clark in New Castle, Indiana, and he later took the "nom de brush" of his home state. He studied at art schools in Indianapolis and Utica, the Chicago School of the Art Institute and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine. In 1953 and 1954 he studied at the Edinburgh College of Art and London University, afterwards settling in New York, hanging out with art stars Ellsworth Kelly and Jack Youngerman. * Indiana's 1973 "Love" stamp was probably the most widely distributed Pop image ever (300 million were issued - the artist was paid $1,000 for his work), but his subject matter is drawn from decidedly UN-Pop American literature and poetry. Best known for sign-like paintings and sculpture, Indiana has also done figurative painting, written poetry, produced opera and collaborated on the film "EAT" with Andy Warhol. * His work is held in every major collection of contemporary art, including: Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Schiedam, The Netherlands; Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh; Detroit Institute of Art, Michigan; Allentown Museum of Art, Pennsylvania; Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland; Brandeis Museum, Waltham, Massachusetts; Albright-Knox Gallery of Art, Buffalo, New York; Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware; Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, Krefeld, Germany; Los Angeles County Museum, California; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, Connecticut; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California. * "(Indiana) has influenced a younger generation of ''word'' artists like Jenny Holzer, Christopher Wool and Barbara Kruger, and at its best it has a jumpy vitality that registers the beat of American life," wrote Grace Glueck in her 1999 review of the artist's retrospective at the Portland Museum of Art, ''Love and the American Dream: The Art of Robert Indiana.'' And the beat goes on - this image has lots of staying power and freshness and may be the perfect addition to your collection of 20th century prints. * Title: Self Portrait 69 Skid RowMedium: Lithograph on paperSheet size: 10 1/2 x 14 1/8 inchesCondition: Excellent
