Sol LeWitt
Color & Black 40 x 40/3

1991

$6,500

About

In 1991, Sol LeWitt made six separate etching series all including "Color & Black" within the title followed by the paper size dimensions. "Color & Black 40 x 40/1-4" are the four largest prints of the six series. In this print (as in the other three of the series), LeWitt used spit bite aquatint to create the marks. Using a brush dipped in acid, the artist painted with the acid on four separate plates that held an aquatint, and after each plate was etched, they were then printed in red, blue, yellow and black. The black plate was printed last, so the colors emanate out from behind, almost glowing. Because of the loose brushwork, many might not recognize these as iconic LeWitt images though he did explore this type of mark-making on ocassion. Sol LeWitt Color & Black 40 x 40/3 Color spit bite aquatint. Image size: 23 x 23"; paper size: 41 x 40". Edition 15. Published by Crown Point Press
