    The American Dream
    Stock Code 96905
    Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier, 1997
    A fine copy with superb provenance; one of thirty Artist Proof copies. From the library of the art historian Susan Elizabeth Ryan, who wrote the foreword to the book.

    Two years in the making, this stunning 100-page work is a compendium of Indiana's masterpieces, alongside the poetry of fellow avant-garde artist Robert Creeley, who first collaborated with Indiana in 1968 on the publication of Numbers.

    The American Dream represents the completion of the cycle that launched Indiana's career, following I, EAT Love Numbers. These works display Indiana's appropriation of advertising to create a new art in the 1960s, using single but powerfully symbolic words. Notable images included are 'The American Dream', 'Love', 'Marilyn Monroe Norma Jean Mortenson', 'Twenty-five Highball, Redball Manifest', 'One Indiana Square' and 'Picasso'.

    The work is presented in a beautiful set of thirty silkscreens and poems the large-format text is presented with a foreword by Susan Ryan and by Michael McKenzie describing the significance of each piece.
