Jim Dine did the painting of the word Love with one letter crooked.
There is a black on black painting owned by the High Museum in Atlanta
which has an article about the civil-rights movement done in black paint
with a stencil on top of black paint. The upper case letters are
approximately an inch high on a painting that is probably 54" x 36".
You have to move around so the light is caught by the slightly raised
letters to be able to read the words. The piece is really interesting
and in over 25 years of taking students to the museum each new group has
at least one student who is really taken by the technique. In the late
80s and early 90s there were many lesser-known artist using words and
particularly stenciling, but I can't remember names now.
