NOT to be confused with the unsigned Paris Review poster that itself sells for $2500 USD and up. This is the rare, highly desirable limited edition Signed, Numbered silkscreen with text. The terrific 1980s pencil signed and numbered Sol Lewitt silkscreen, with gorgeous pastel squares and bearing the text "Paris Review", was part of a series of prints created over the years by renowned artists, including Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Christo, Willem de Kooning, Louise Bourgeois, Alex Katz and others who were commissioned to create works to raise funds for the Paris Review literary publication. The Paris Review originally sold this work back in 1983 for US $5,000. It sold out long ago. Many galleries have priced this work notably higher in the intervening three decades. We have not. (NOTE: This signed, limited edition work is NOT to be confused with the unsigned Sol Lewitt poster of the same title, that was created in an open (unsigned) edition during the same era for the Paris Review, and regularly sells at various poster auction sites for up to $1000.)
This work in an elegant white frame with matting and ready to hang.

About Sol LeWitt

One of the leading exponents of Conceptual art, Sol LeWitt stressed the idea behind his work over its execution. “A blind man can make art if what is in his mind can be passed to another mind in some tangible form,” he once said. LeWitt is best known for his large-scale “Wall Drawings,” rigorous arrays of designs, shapes, grids, and colors rendered in pencil and paint in coherence with strict instructions and diagrams to be followed in executing the work. LeWitt made over 1,200 of these works in his career, his visual vocabulary in strong alignment with Minimalism despite his rejection of the movement. His “structures”, as he preferred to call sculptures, were variations on geometric shapes, constructed from steel, polyurethane, or concrete, often featuring stacked cubes without sides. LeWitt is one of the seminal artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, influencing artists like Eva Hesse and Frank Stella, among countless others.
