A little "Love" for Crystal Bridges

Posted By on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 9:24 AM


A sharp-eyed fan of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art asked on the museum's Facebook page when Robert Indiana's 1999 "Love" sculpture would be installed. The museum said it would announce something shortly on new sculpture installations, but sharp-eyed fan had apparently looked at the trails map on the website and seen that "Love" is planned for a trail tucked in the woods south of the museum and east of the trail to the rear entrance of the museum. (See map).

Phillips de Pury & Co., New York, sold one of Indiana's "Love" editions for $1.3 million last May. (Polychrome aluminum.
96 x 96 x 48 in., stamped 1966-1999.) Christie's sold another, for $4.1 million (144 x 144 x 72 in.). But the latter was stamped 1990; CBM's trails map dates its "Love" as 1999. So it looks like Alice Walton got a deal. Eight by eight by four feet is a fine scale for a path in the Ozark woods.
