Lot Essay

“Because of the possibilities for multiplication inherent in the grid form, a basic and seemingly unlimited vocabulary was at LeWitt's disposal... [the] serial form produced multipart pieces of finite order but infinite complexity.” (A. Legg, Sol LeWitt, exh. cat., Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1984, p. 9).
