Lot description
Framed: 26.5 x 34.25 in

Exemplifying his penchant for geometric design and vivid use of colors, this untitled gouache on paper work by Sol LeWitt is a stunning example of the artist's characteristic style. Layering various colors in a chaotic abstract arrangement, this dynamic display of interweaving lines extends across the surface to seize the viewer's attention.

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).
