Lot description
Combining his love of geometric design with minimalist abstraction, this unique ‘Table’ made by artist Sol LeWitt in 1967 incorporates a grid-like pattern so often employed in his two and three dimensional works. Elegant in its simplistic design, this piece by LeWitt is set upon a wood base and covered in a glass tabletop, accentuating the geometric pattern and overall form with a clean, reflective surface.

Considered a founder of the Minimalist and Conceptualist movements, American artist Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) was known for his brightly colored sculptures, paintings, installations, and architectural designs which employed geometric forms, abstracted progressions, and visually complex compositions. Gaining notoriety in the late 1960s, LeWitt tested the psychological perception of viewers as well as contemporary notions of visual aesthetics with his vivid works of geometric abstraction and minimalism. The artist received his BFA from Syracuse University and studied at the School of Visual Arts. Since 1965, he has been the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world, with retrospectives held at the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, CA), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago, IL), and the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY).
