The Monumental Woods is a career-spanning retrospective catalogue of wood sculptures from American artist Robert Indiana (born 1928). This publication showcases five decades of work from Indiana’s beginnings in the mid-century New York artist community of Coenties Slip, which included Indiana’s close friends Ellsworth Kelly and Agnes Martin, to his chosen remote island home off the coast of Maine, where he has spent the past four decades. The pieces presented in this book, many reproduced for the first time, offer a retrospective survey of Indiana’s sculptural oeuvre. With its handsome copper-stamped cover, The Monumental Woods includes exhibition shots, archival photographs and detail shots of many sculptures, in addition to a suite of color photos of the artist’s home in Maine. The book concludes with three interviews of Indiana, set decades apart, in which the artist discusses the inspiration and evolution of his sculptures.

Published by Hatje Cantz. Edited by Allison Unruh. Text by Thomas Crow, Robert Storr, Jonathan Katz.
Self-described as an “American painter of signs,” Robert Indiana (born 1928) has interpreted the postwar American semiotic landscape through a unique merging of Pop's graphic snap with American modernist painting's codes of sexuality and use of advertising designs. Best known for his iconic rendition of the word “love,” over the past 50 years Indiana has created a major body of work that spans the movements of assemblage, hard-edged abstraction and Pop art. This book surveys his career from the early 1960s to the present, also convening new scholarship on this important artist by writers such as Thomas Crow and Robert Storr. Addressing topics ranging from Indiana's politically engaged works, his formative years in the Coentie's Slip artistic community in downtown Manhattan, Indiana's place within Pop and his allegorical depictions of gender and family, this book reevaluates and reorients some of Indiana's most significant works.

Few artworks are more widely recognized than Robert Indiana's iconic Pop image "Love" which was originally commissioned as a Christmas card by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1965. Appealing to a wide spectrum of viewers from its inception to the present--1960s idealists to museum-bookstore shoppers--Love has been reproduced in prints, political banners, stamps and an equally iconic sculpture. This volume is published in honor of the artist's eightieth birthday and provides an intriguing look at his canonical large-scale metal sculpture. In addition to Love, such well-known works as the Electric Eat, Art and the autobiographical Numbers series are reproduced. Robert Indiana was born Robert Clark in Indiana in 1928 and took his home state's name after moving to New York in 1954. He became known by the early 1960s for his hard-edged abstract paintings featuring text, numbers and symbols.
