Few Pop images are more widely recognised than Indiana's LOVE. Originally designed as a Christmas card commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art in 1965, LOVE has appeared in prints, paintings, sculptures, banners, rings, tapestries, and stamps. Full of erotic, religious, autobiographical, and political underpinnings — especially when it was co-opted as an emblem of 1960s idealism —LOVE is both accessible and complex in meaning. In printed works, Indiana has rendered LOVE in a variety of colours, compositions, and techniques. He even translated it into Hebrew for a print and a sculpture at the Israel Museum on Jerusalem.
