In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work.

Sol LeWitt is credited as one of the pioneers of the conceptual art movement that came out of New York in the 1960s. He is best known for his large-scale wall drawings which utilize the skill of students and draftsmen in order to execute them.


In my case, I used the elements of these simple forms - square, cube, line and color - to produce logical systems. Most of these systems were finite; that is, they were complete using all possible variations. This kept them simple.

Sol LeWitt is identified as a pioneer of the 1960s conceptual art movement and is perhaps best known for his ‘Wall Drawings’. Before dedicating his life entirely to an artist, Sol LeWitt worked as a graphic designer for the architect I.M. Pei, which would later inspire the architectural references in his artworks. His three-dimensional structural works, comprising geometric forms like cubes and pyramids, were applied to a range of media from sculpture to painting to his works on paper, as exemplified here. These so-called "structures" became a defining theme in his career spanning over 40 years.
Today, his works are held in collections including the Mass MoCA, Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Art Washington, D.C., Tate Gallery in London, Dia Art Foundation in Beacon, NY, and the Walker Art Center, MN, among many others. Locally, his work can be seen as part of the floor of La Monnaie, commissioned by the late famous architect Charles Vandenhove.
