Monarchy, a black painting with its title painted in beige stenciled letters across the bottom. Above is a circle, with the Union Jack in the center, surrounded by a black ring with beige outlines. inside the ring is the beige stenciled text "The King is dead. Long live the Queen."

Perhaps you think you don’t know Robert Indiana – but you do. Or at least you know Love, in which the letter O rests its head on the shoulders of E, touching L and V, which are themselves locked into blissful typographical union. It’s a sculpture whose colours glow like love itself, making a wonderful entry point to Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s thrilling six-decade retrospective of this curiously under-appreciated artist.
