Robert Indiana, born Robert Clark (born September 13, 1928), is an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His “LOVE” print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art‘s Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for the widely-distributed 1973 United States Postal Service “LOVE” stamp. His media include paper (silk screen) and Cor-ten steel sculpture.
