Sol LeWitt (1928-2007)

February 23, 2011

LeWitt is regarded as a founder of both Minimal and Conceptual art. His prolific two and three-dimensional work ranges from wall drawings (over 1200 of which have been executed) to hundreds of works on paper extending to structures in the form of towers, pyramids, geometric forms, and progressions.

One thing that I find interesting is that LeWitt was apparently the opposite of the celebrity artist and tried to suppress media interest by refusing to pose for pictures or give interviews. He also turned down awards and disliked having his photograph published in newspaper and magazines.
