Sol LeWitt


Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) is one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century, an important contributor to both Minimalism and Conceptual Art. 

This unique work on paper is a perfect example of LeWitt’s iconic use of casual forms to explore repetition and the interplay of color. In the late 1980's LeWitt departed from rigid geometry, that had characterized his aesthetic for decades, in a pursuit of free-flowing lines and unusual fluid forms. 

In this later period, LeWitt embraced both drawing and gouache, that are now amongst his most desirable works on the market.

Swirl (2001) feature his emblematic thick black brushstrokes, that almost resemble a ribcage, creating an overlay of movement with a vibrant blue coating the underlayer, and bright red dots peeking through.
