Solomon 'Sol' LeWitt (American, 1928-2007) was an American artist who contributed greatly to Conceptual art and Minimalism of the post-war era. He used simple shapes and colors as fundamental elements of his drawings, installations and structures. 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 (The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1959-1960), they were introduced to the work of Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, and Robert Rauschenberg. His works range from wall drawings to several hundreds of works on paper, as well as a number of three-dimensional structures.
