Robert Indiana’s Hartley Elegies (1989–94) is a series of 18 paintings, grouped into three formats, rectangular, diamond, and tondo. A poignant meditation on identity and loss, they are the most recent of his homages to American artists and poets, and were inspired by Marsden Hartley’s War Motif series, which Hartley executed as a tribute to the young German soldier Karl von Freyburg, who died during World War I and with whom Hartley had a deep friendship. Indiana employs Hartley’s stylized visual language throughout the Elegies, while reinvesting them with additional content and meaning. He weaves references to Hartley and von Freyburg with allusions to himself, and to places and historical events with overlapping symbolic meanings, forming a web linking his life to Hartley’s.

I think Love from Robert Indiana is one of the most beloved icons/images from the (pop)art scene.
Which started with a little love in 1965/1966 for the MoMa (and a Christmas Card)
Indiana's romance with words is matched by his fascination with numbers. Throughout his career, the artist has manipulated the cardinal numbers in both two and three dimentions. In fact, Indiana's monumental sculptures of the cardinal numbers, which grace permanent collection of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and a book, titled simply Numbers, with poetry by Robert Creeley, offer, a graphic look at Indiana's masterpieces of numbers.
Mr. Robert Indiana;s (love) work is iconic - one of the world most known/ litterly loved images
