This is an extremely rare pencil signed and numbered screenprint from the mid-1970s, one of the most important eras in Conceptual and Minimalist art. It is the Cover Sheet from a series of six silkscreens called "Lines In Color on Color From Corners Sides and Centers to Specific Points on a Grid," also known as: "Lines in Color on Color to Specific Points on a Grid." This work is beautifully floated and framed with UV plexiglass in an elegant white wooden frame. Ready to hang.
Framed, it measures approx. 35 square inches, and the sheet itself measures 30 square inches. Many works from this small 1970s edition of only 25 are already in major museum and public collections worldwide, so this is quite uncommon and desirable.

Signature: Signed and numbered lower right recto (front) in pencil.

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.
