Praiano: Sol LeWitt is dead

the Amalfi Coast remembers the conceptual artist

Among the most greater animators of the conceptual and the minimalism art, celebrated in the most prestigious museums of the world, is dead last week to New York , after a long and serious illness.

Its relationship with Italy has always been very intense and he has lived many years between Spoleto and Praiano, country of origin of the family of his wife.

The Mayor of Praiano has expressed the depth grief, of the whole citizen, and of the Amalfi Coast for the disappearance of the great artist.

Sol LeWitt (September 9, 1928 – April 8, 2007) was an American artist linked to various movements including conceptual art and minimalism. His mediums were predominantly painting, drawing, and structures (a term he preferred in opposition to sculpture).

He has been the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions in museums and galleries worldwide since 1965. His prolific two and three-dimensional work ranges from Wall Drawings, over 1200 of which have been executed, to photographs and hundreds of works on paper and extends to structures in the form of towers, pyramids, geometric forms, and progressions.
