Further information
In 1971, Robert Indiana began work on a suite of paintings known as the Decade: Autoportraits, each documenting a different year of his life in the 1960s. Using an overlapping, quasi-Cubist format, he stenciled his signature words such as "eat," "die," "jack," and "juke," along with the names of people he had known and the places he had visited, lived, or worked during the decade onto the canvases.
