The goldplated LOVE ring, was designed by Robert Indiana and made as an unnumbered multiple to accompany Charles Revson's "Ultima II" perfume, later Revlon cosmetics. This LOVE ring extends from the artist’s lengthy series, which began as a simple Christmas card design for friends and has slowly become one of the most recognisable images in the art world. His technique is bold and visually stimulating, elevating simple text and colloquialisms in order to merge the personal and the public, the visual and the verbal.
Robert Indiana’s work has become extremely popular in pop culture, and is characterized by typically American subject matter, bright colors, and clearly defined contours. He is most famous for his LOVE paintings and sculptures, first produced in the 1960s. Creating a block out of the word—with the “L” and the “O” set atop the “V” and the “E”—Indiana has effectively inserted his own sign into the mix.
