Robert E. Clark, renowned American Pop artist Robert Indiana adopted
the name of his native state early in his career. A painter of
the American environment, he creates images from words and numbers
that are inspired by the world of signs—in particular, signs
on the highway that refer allegorically to life’s journey.
His paintings, sculpture, and graphics are exhibited internationally
and are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of
Modern Art and the Smithsonian Institution. In 1978, he left New
York City for the solitude of Vinalhaven, Maine, where he lives
and works today. His 1973 stamp was the first Love stamp ever
issued by the U.S. Postal Service.
