The Mother of Us All—a 1945 opera by Virgil Thomson set to a libretto by Gertrude Stein—chronicles the life of Susan B. Anthony in a fanciful exploration of American history. In 1967, Robert Indiana was invited to design the set and costumes for the Center Opera Company at the Tyrone Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and several productions thereafter. Similar to his pop-art paintings, he employed flat primary colors, but took a more patriotic bent for this production: red, white, and blue banners; star-spangled pickets affirming the right to vote; and signage that draws on American advertising—all of which are imbued in this poster. This poster is hand-signed by Indiana and his assistant, Bill Katz.
