Robert Indiana kept a series of illustrated journals during the late 1950s and 1960s, in which he discusses the development of his work.
Indiana's journals also give insight into his daily life and tastes. In this entry he mentions a trip uptown to see Boccaccio '70 at a new movie theater on Third Avenue and 60th Street. He describes the film as "great fun, particularly [the] billboard sequence, beautifully done by Fellini w/ Anita Ekberg. Mama Italia Loren an earthy raffle prize, and Romy Schneider, a cool sex kitten, speak’g German and Italian." Indiana also notes that Enrico Donati dominates the current art exhibition organized by the Staempfli Gallery.
