This sculpture, which was published in 1968 under the title ‘2/2 Two Two-part pieces using a cube with opposite sides removed‘ by the Zurich Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, is characteristic in its use of modular cube shapes for the three-dimensional artist's work of the 1960s. LeWitt thus tried various possibilities of variation in systems which make no statement about something other than itself, thus being concrete.
The sculpture is in very good condition with slight races of use, like slight scratches on the surface and traces on the base. The overall dimensions of the sculpture are 30 x 45 x 15 cm.
Sol LeWitt (1928-2007)
Sol LeWitt was born in 1928 in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. From 1945 to 1949 he studied at the School of Visual Arts of Syracuse University. In 1953 he settled in New York, where he worked as a graphic designer and later also taught at various art schools. In the early 1960s, the artist developed his own style with geometric sculptures and modular work. By sobriety and logic of his work and by theoretical statements Sol LeWitt was an important stimulator of conceptual art. (tm)
