ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — A New York-based copyright holder that sued the late artist Robert Indiana a day before his death has reached a settlement with his estate and the foundation set up to transform the artist's home into museum. The settlement, disclosed this week, brings the legal wrangling over the estate of the artist known for his iconic "LOVE" series closer to an end. The agreement, which has not been made public, would become effective in May upon settling of a final detail. The lawsuit by the Morgan Art Foundation was filed in New York the day before Indiana's death on May 19, 2018, on Vinalhaven Island, off the Maine coast. He was 89.

Robert Indiana was born in New Castle, Indiana.
