Catalogue Note

"The work I'm doing now, my Autoportraits, I regard as an extension of the Dream series – my own personal American Dream. In other words, they have become self-portraits. I think of myself first of all as an American, then as an American painter painting an American theme. And this will continue." - Robert Indiana
