Catalogue Note

"The year 1966 was the height of the counterculture movement, and Indiana introduced LOVE right at the time when that generation was proclaiming "Make love, not war." It was caught up immediately by the press and the public."
Barbara Haskell, curator of Robert Indiana Beyond Love, Whitney Museum of Art, New York, 2013-2014, in an interview with Rachel Wolff in Departures, December 11, 2013
