Considered the founder of Minimalist and Conceptual art, Sol LeWitt created vivid works of geometric abstraction and minimalism that sought to test the psychological perception of viewers as well as contemporary notions of visual aesthetics. LeWitt's ability to manipulate simple line renderings into complex compositions of depth and dimension is wonderfully demonstrated in this gouache work on paper, "Horizontal Lines," which was executed in the final years of the legendary artist's life. The work measures 8 x 22 inches (20.3 x 55.9 cm), and is framed under glass with dimensions of 13 x 27 inches (33 x 68.6 cm).
