Was Robert Indiana’s Last Sculpture This Homage to the Bratwurst ?

The odd, isolated end of Robert Indiana’s life included a lawsuit filed in his final days that accused two associates of taking advantage of the elderly artist in his later years by churning out inauthentic works under his name.

Some friends and art experts joined in the debate, questioning whether Mr. Indiana, who died on Saturday at 89, was really the creative force behind a series of prints from 2016 that included images of Bob Dylan lyrics and a sculpture this year titled “WINE.”

That conversation is likely to escalate with the discovery Thursday that Mr. Indiana’s last monumental sculpture was a tribute to bratwurst. It was commissioned by the owners of Johnsonville Sausage, in Wisconsin, that is one of the country’s largest producers.
