More from the @nytimes story on Robert Indiana, link in profile. The artist lived on Vinalhaven off the coast of Maine for decades after leaving New York. On Friday a lawsuit was filed alleging that his caretaker and a curator had kept him cut off from the public while they pushed out fraudulent works of art under his name. We spent the day on the island Friday talking to anyone who knew him, and trying to get access to him and having no luck. And then the next day Robert Indiana died. He’s maybe best known for his ‘LOVE’ sculpture - you know it, the one with a tilted ‘O’. But he was a prolific artist for decades. And now, who knows what will happen to his estate. Vinalhaven, ME
