NEW YORK, NY.- The Robert Indiana Catalogue Raisonné, an ongoing project dedicated to documenting the artistic practice of American artist Robert Indiana (b. 1928, d. 2018), is now available online. Published by RI Catalogue Raisonné LLC using Panopticon software, and authored by Simon Salama-Caro, founder of the Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative, this free digital publication documents the artist’s paintings and sculptures conceived between 1955 and 2007.

"This is a new resource for the continued study and celebration of the work of Robert Indiana, one of America’s most influential artists,” said Simon Salama-Caro, who was entrusted by the artist in 1998 to prepare a catalogue raisonné of his work. “We hope that scholars, educators, arts professionals, and anyone wishing to gain a refined knowledge of the work of Indiana will use this new tool to learn about the breadth and depth of his oeuvre.”

Works included in the publication are paintings and sculptures that have been clearly documented through the artist’s records, gallery records, or fabricators’ records. The catalogue’s digital format allows for updated information to be added as it becomes available. This progressive approach to publishing enables greater and more immediate access to research as it develops.

The Catalogue Raisonné is divided into five sections:

Works, divided into Painting and Sculpture, provides information on all artwork entries along with full-color reproductions

Chronology offers an extensive overview of Indiana’s life and career, detailing the connections between the biography and the artworks

Exhibition History includes information about solo and group exhibitions in which Indiana’s work has been included

Literature includes published references, a selective bibliography, archival sources, artist's statements, and a selection of pages from Indiana's journals and Collections includes an international list of all known public collections that hold paintings and/or sculptures by Indiana.

In the future, RI Catalogue Raisonné LLC intends to add a digital volume on works on paper and an update for prints.

RI Catalogue Raisonné LLC does not authenticate or provide valuations of works of art by Robert Indiana.

Robert Indiana

Robert Indiana (b.1928-d.2018), one of the preeminent figures in American art since the 1960s, played a central role in the development of assemblage art, hard-edge painting, and Pop art. A self-proclaimed “American painter of signs,” Indiana created a highly original body of work that explores American identity, personal history, and the power of abstraction and language, establishing an important legacy that resonates in the work of many contemporary artists who make the written word a central element of their oeuvre.

Indiana’s artwork has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, and his works are in the permanent collections of important museums such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; the National Gallery of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.; the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Menil Collection in Houston; the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire; the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany; the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands; the Museum Ludwig in Vienna, Austria; the Art Museum of Ontario in Toronto; and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
