Sol LeWitt

Sol LeWitt (1928-2007, Unites States) was one of the most prominent and influential modern artists associated with minimalism and conceptual art in the 1960s. LeWitt is widely known for his sculptures which he termed structures, and his wall drawings executed in various sizes. The majority of his work is characterized by its geometric shapes, mathematical formulas and repetitions. The cube – formed as a linear skeleton – serves as the basic recurring shape in his works. Sol LeWitt’s works are frequently on show at leading international museums, including the MoMA, the National Gallery in Washington DC, the Museum for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, and the Sculpture Project in Münster Germany.
