Subject matter
”LOVE” exhibits Indiana’s use of vibrating color and simple formal configurations. It was originally designed as a Christmas card commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art in 1965, and reflects Indiana’s Pop-inspired fascination with the power of ordinary words, and is filled with spiritual, social and political overtones, especial when looked at in the historical context of the 1960s.

Physical Description
The word “love” printed in capital letters in red on a blue and green background with a black border or frame
