SOL LEWITT
SOL LEWITT, AMERICAN (1928-2007), paper folded into squares, 1971. Signed to bottom right square 'Sol LeWitt London June 15 1971'. Lisson Gallery stamp and label verso, with No.7 written in pencil.PROVENANCE: Acquired from a 1973 Lisson Gallery exhibition, presumably from 'Sol LeWitt: Lines through toward and to centre points' , May 1973, though the signature suggests that it was made at an earlier date. A similar example was sold at Christie's Post-war & Contemporary Art auction on 17th April 2013. Compton visited exhibitions at the Lisson Gallery from its opening in 1967 and later met Sol LeWitt in New York. Sold with a copy of 1973 Lisson Gallery invoice.This lot is part of a single owner collection of 28 lots to include Roy Lichtenstein, Marcel Broodthaers, Terry Frost, Henry Moore, Richard Long, Victor Newsome, Keith Milow, Billy Al Bengston, Ian Stephenson, Sol LeWitt and Joe Tilson.SOL LEWITT (1928-2007): Sol LeWitt was born 1928 in Connecticut to Eastern European immigrants. LeWitt received a BFA from Syracuse University in 1949 (where he made his first prints) and then was drafted in the Korean War in 1951. During his service, he made posters for the Special Services and spent time in Japan. In 1953, he moved to New York , where he studied at the Cartoonists and Illustrators School (now the School of Visual Arts). In 1960, he took an entry-level job at the Museum of Modern Art, where he met Dan Flavin, Robert Ryman, Lucy Lippard and Robert Mangold. Together, through the 'Sixteen Americans' exhibition, they were introduced to the work of Jasper Johns and Frank Stella and Robert Rauschenberg. LeWitt was also interested in Russian Constructivism, with its engineering aesthetic and the idea of making utilitarian art in an industrialised age. LeWitt's three dimensional structural works from the mid to late 1960s - such as Serial Project, Three Part Variations on Three Different Cubes, and hundreds of sculptures made of open white cubes - grew out of this interest in the serial. He applied the same system of permutations and variations in his prints, drawings on paper and drawings on the wall. Sol LeWitt executed his first wall drawing in 1968 at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York. Wall Drawing #1 emphasized the premise of the artwork over the final product."I wasn't really that interested in objects. I was interested in ideas." - SOL LEWITT.Work size: 21.7" x 4.1" (24" x 6.5" in frame) 21.704.10 Ewbank's Auctions
