Sol LeWitt 1928 - 2007

Michael Kimmelman, in his NYT obituary cites an amazing quote of LeWitt's from Artforum in 1967:"Conceptual art is not necessarily logical. The ideas need not be complex. Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple. Successful ideas generally have the appearance of simplicity because they seem inevitable."

Searching for LeWitt images, we came across this quote on Sketchblog: "I would like to produce something I would not be ashamed to show Giotto." And also this sweet picture from an installation at the gemeentemuseum in the Hague.
