American, 1928 — 2007

Sol LeWitt is a multidisciplinary artist whose conceptual ideas deeply influenced the contemporary artistic scene. His Wall Drawings, monumental murals projecting patterns and colours in the space they enclose, are among his most significant works.

The first part of his artistic production is characterised by tridimensional installations with a minimalist spirit: LeWitt focuses specifically on the geometric cubic shape, considered a perfect module. His manifesto, published at the end of the 1960s, stated that art is first and foremost an idea rather than its representation. He then set up a rigorous execution process for his assistants, excluding all forms of emotional involvement.

An emblematic artist, Sol LeWitt is the subject of many retrospectives, like those at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art (2015). Six of his Wall Drawings, part of the Pinault Collection, were first shown at the 2016 “Accrochage” ("Hanging") exhibition at the Punta della Dogana.
