"Sol LeWitt, whose deceptively simple geometric sculptures and
drawings and ecstatically colored and jazzy wall paintings established
him as a lodestar of modern American art, died yesterday [April 8] in
New York. He was 78 and lived mostly in Chester, Conn."
"....Here, among the often hulking displays of Minimal Art, you'll
find an exhilarating show of 14 of LeWitt's mind-teasing, eye-filling
wall drawings. All were made by people other than the artist,
following his written instructions..."
"Although LeWitt has plenty of white, geometric Minimalist sculpture
to his name, the wall drawings he began making in 1968 pose the most
interesting questions about art and have had the greatest influence.
He rediscovered the wall, an artistic working surface since the time
of cave paintings, the way the Earth artists of his generation
rediscovered the desert, home of the pyramids."
