Sol LeWitt was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1928 known well for his involvement in the Conceptual art movement and Minimalism. He was exposed to art while studying at Syracuse University. After serving in the Korean War, he moved to New York City in 1953 to the Lower East Side. His early influences unsurprisingly included architecture and graphic design, along with Modern Art. He spent a time as a clerk at the MoMA, where he met many prominent figures of the art world. The prolific LeWitt created hundreds of drawings, large and small, studying space, form, and the role of the idea in relationship to art. He also worked with sculpture, although preferred to call them “structures.” His sculptures, screenprints, and works on paper are found in many of the most prominent international collections.
