Sol LeWitt

Sol LeWitt, born in Connecticut in 1928, began exhibiting in New York in the 1960s, and has gone on to become one of the most influential artists of today. His systematic methodology centers on the idea behind a work of art, a formulaic procedure by which a work is to be installed directly on a wall by hands other than the artist’s. LeWitt’s Wall Drawings were a revolution in drawing and painting. Although known primarily for this work, LeWitt is also a print-maker, photographer, and sculptor. A major retrospective was inaugurated in the year 2000, traveling from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and to the Whitney Museum of American Art.
