Four Americans in Paris was an exhibition of 225 paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures acquired by writer Gertrude Stein and her family in Paris, when they were early patrons of 20th century art.

Born Robert Clark in Indiana, the artist took his native state’s name after moving to New York in 1954. One of the central figures of the Pop Art movement, Robert Indiana, during an interview with the New York Times, said that his art was inspired by commercial signs: “There are more signs than trees in America. There are more signs than leaves. So I think of myself as a painter of American landscape.” Indiana is most famous for his “Love” paintings and sculptures, first produced in the 1960s.
