If you don't recognize the name, you will definitely recognize his work. Sol LeWitt is one of the most influential contemporary artists to date and one of the original founders of both Minimalism and Constructivism. His large-scale drawings, powerful walls of lines and colors, have had a lasting impact on the visual language of many artists today. The meticulous design of his two-dimensional works also translates to his geometric sculptures, often stripped-down cubes and simplistic grids that speak to essential forms.
Tomorrow, Pace Gallery will open a show titled "Sol LeWitt: Horizontal Progressions." The exhibition includes seven of the artist's structures (a word he preferred to sculptures) from 1991. Familiarize yourself with the artist behind these unique works with 15 Things to Know About Sol LeWitt.
