Sol LeWitt

Sol LeWitt is regarded as a founder of both Minimal and Conceptual art. Inspired by Eadweard Muybridge's sequential photographs of animals and people in motion, LeWitt incorporated seriality in his work to imply the passage of time or narration.  Sol LeWitt was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1928, and attended Syracuse University. LeWitt had his first solo exhibition at the Daniels Gallery, New York, in 1965, and the following year Dwan Gallery, New York, mounted the first in a series of solo exhibitions. He participated, during the late 1960s and early 1970s, in several significant group exhibitions of Minimalist and Conceptual art, including "Primary Structures," at the Jewish Museum, New York, in 1966, and "When Attitude Becomes Form," at the Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, in 1969. LeWitt's work was included in Documentas 6 (1977) and 7 (1982) in Kassel, as well as the 1987 Skulptur Projekte in Münster and the 1989 Istanbul Biennial. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1978, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, in 2000, organized major retrospectives of his works. Sol LeWitt died on April 8, 2007 in New York City.
