Lot 59: Sol LeWitt & Sachiko Cho, Linocut & Photogravure, 2000 (24 views) Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) Description: Linocut and photogravure on Somerset Satin white paper USA, 2000 Sol LeWitt and Sachiko Cho 'Equivalent: Plate 8' Signed in pencil lower right 'Sachiko Cho S. LEWITT' Numbered in pencil lower right '21/30' From Equivalent Printed by Watanabe Press, New York Published by Ink Tree Editions, Kusnacht, Switzerland Full margins; matted Sheet dimensions: 12 x 18 in. (30.5 x 45.7 cm.) Overall dimensions: 14 ¼ x 20 in. (36.2 x 50.8 cm.) Very good condition The black-and-white photographs by the Japanese artist Sachiko Cho depict simple objects and everyday scenes. Sol LeWitt responds to each with a glossy, color linocut on the same sheet. Using brightly colored patterns, he makes direct reference or more oblique allusion to the structure of the photographs. The resulting juxtapositions give rise to analogies, mirror-images, and associations of surprising freshness. Out of a vibrant contrast of techniques, chromatic treatment, and motifs emerges a harmonious dialogue between the two pictures; the compositional structure becomes transparent and readable. Executed in 2000, this linocut by Sol LeWitt and photogravure by Sachiko Cho are signed by the artists, dated and numbered twenty-one from an edition of thirty. Printed by Watanabe Press, New York, and published by Ink Tree Editions, Kusnacht, the work has full margins and is matted. The sheet measures 12 x 18 inches. In overall good condition with no stains, toning, tears or repairs. Sol LeWitt (American, 1928-2007) A founding member of both Minimalism and Conceptual Art, American artist Sol LeWitt is most famous for his "wall drawings" and sculptures based on the cube. After serving in the armed forces and working as a graphic designer, LeWitt began creating two- and three-dimensional works using the cube, varying its form through language, mathematics and other structures. Interested in repetition and seriality, LeWitt's oeuvre includes sculpture, drawings, prints and artist's books. The artist has held solo exhibitions at Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Stedelijik Museum in Amsterdam, among other venues. He has also exhibited his work at several documenta exhibitions in Kassel, Germany, and at several Venice Biennale shows.

Lot 102: Sol LeWitt, Sculpture, '2/2 Two Two-part pieces', 1968 Description: Sculpture, enameled white steel Switzerland, 1968 Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) - US-American Minimal Art artist Signed 'Sol LeWitt' and numbered '34'/35 on a label underneath Published by Galerie Bischofsberger, Zurich Dimensions: 30 x 45 x 15 cm Good condition Characteristic work by Sol LeWitt, who is considered one of the most important artists of the Minimal Art; comparable sculptures by the artist fetch up to more than €110,000 at international auctions Object is regular taxed. 19% VAT is added to the purchase price for deliveries within the EU. This sculpture, which was published in 1968 under the title '2/2 Two Two-part pieces using a cube with opposite sides removed' by the Zurich Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, is characteristic in its use of modular cube shapes for the three-dimensional artist's work of the 1960s. LeWitt thus tried various possibilities of variation in systems which make no statement about something other than itself, thus being concrete. The enameled steel sculpture is signed on a label underneath 'Sol LeWitt' and numbered '34'/35. It bears small scuffs, slight surface soil and a small label on the right side. The label underneath is somewhat darkened and stained. The sculpture measures 30 x 45 x 15 cm. Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) Sol LeWitt was born in 1928 in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. From 1945 to 1949 he studied at the School of Visual Arts of Syracuse University. In 1953 he settled in New York, where he worked as a graphic designer and later also taught at various art schools. In the early 1960s, the artist developed his own style with geometric sculptures and modular work. By sobriety and logic of his work and by theoretical statements Sol LeWitt was an important stimulator of conceptual art. (fea)
