Sol LeWitt (born 1928) recieved a BFA from Syracuse University in 1949. LeWitt came to fame in the late 1960s with his wall drawings and "structures" but was prolific in a wide range of media including drawing, printmaking, photography, painting, installation, and artist's books.
LeWitt is regarded as a founder of both Minimal and Conceptual art. His prolific two and three-dimensional work ranges from wall drawings to hundreds of works on paper extending to structures in the form of towers, pyramids, geometric forms, and progressions.
LeWitt died on April 8, 2007 in New York, NY. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Tate Gallery in London, the Dia Art Foundation in Beacon, NY, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
- Another minimalist master in the collection is Ellsworth Kelly. Kelly's elegant compositions of geometric shapes are as iconic as LeWitt's squiggles. View his work.
- Robert Rauschenberg, a contemporary of LeWitt, was also responsible for significant advancements in the field of conceptual art. View his work.
