Photographer's Note

Another angle of Robert Indiana's 'LOVE' sculpture sat on the cascading fountain at Chatsworth House gardens. I love this sculptures simplicity and boldness. With this incarnations title 'Red outside, Blue inside' Indiana's point I think is clearly presented. Also the positioning of this sculpture within the grounds was flawless, in an open area for everyone to see and appreciate.

* The 'Love' image was created in 1964 and has had numerous incarnations since its original Christmas card release.
Infamously, Indiana failed to register a copyright for the work, and found it difficult to deter unauthorized commercial use. The image has been reproduced in countless times in varying forms, including sculptures, posters, and 3-D desk ornaments. It has been translated into Hebrew, Chinese, and Spanish. It strongly influenced the original cover of Love Story, the Erich Segal novel. It was parodied on the Rage Against the Machine album cover for Renegades, as well as the cover for Oasis' single Little by Little from the 2002 album Heathen Chemistry. Artist Mathew Jones created an AIDS-protest homage that read "DEAD". Philadelphia anti-folk singer Adam Brodsky has a tattoo reading "DORK".
