Sol LeWitt
Parallel Curves

2000

About the Item

Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) is an important contributor to the 20th century's most cerebral "isms" notably minimalism and conceptual art. Many of his works were created from elaborate and detailed instructions rather than his own hand or labor. His (in)famous large-scale "wall drawings" for example, destabilized and expanded the definition of authorship as they were executed by teams using instructions. Furthermore these classic "wall drawings" were often temporary - only lasting the duration of an exhibition. Influenced by his time as an architect, LeWitt's artistic practice was rooted in a deep appreciation of geometric forms. Utilizing ratios, patterns, and formulas, the artist would create geometric works across many mediums. "Parallel Curves" is a fine example from the last chapter of the artist's career. Set on a saturated tomato red backdrop, this work features a series of intricate curves that converge to form a web-like pattern. The curves, executed in a soft translucent grey/violet, transform into a cool mauve when intermixed with the red surroundings. This is a fine example of LeWitt's remarkable mastery of color and form. "Parallel Curves" was included in the "Landfall Press 30th Anniversary Portfolio" alongside works by Claes Oldenburg and Jim Dine, among others. Today, LeWitt's work is represented in numerous public institutions including the MoMA (New York), the Tate Modern (London), the National Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), and the Centre Pompidou (Paris), among others.

  • Reflections II
    By Louise Nevelson
    Located in Toronto, Ontario
    Caviar20 is excited to be offering this evocative print by the inimitable Louise Nevelson - one of the most revered and unique sculptors of the 20th century. Nevelson is renowned for her mysterious and complex artworks. She was an active printmaker, experimenting with different techniques and approaches while working with some of the best print-making studios in the United States. Nevelson, whether working in sculpture or in two dimensions typically had a strict palette; almost exclusively black. While there are iconic works in white, gold, or raw wood, Nevelson almost entirely avoids color. However during the last decade of her life, her palette expands notably with her printmaking. "Reflections II" is an example from her 1983 portfolio, "Reflections I-V" consisting of six large-scale prints. These prints contains signature elements found throughout Nevelson's prints; ripped or collage-like forms as well as the use of fabric, lace and toile in the printing process. However one of the strongest characteristics of the "Reflections" series is her new uninhibited use of color. Here it is used to maximum effect. This work features unexpected elements of tangerine, translucent Prussian blue, and mint green that punctuate her signature layered collage-like composition. Nevelson's late prints are truly some of her best. Over the last few years, there has been tremendous momentum in both interest and appreciation of Nevelson's work. In May of 2021, a new auction record of $1.35 million was established for one of Nevelson's signature white construction sculptures...

    By Louise Nevelson
    Located in Toronto, Ontario
    Caviar20 is excited to be offering this evocative print by the inimitable Louise Nevelson - one of the most revered and unique sculptors of the 20th century. Nevelson is renowned for her mysterious and complex artworks. She was an active printmaker, experimenting with different techniques and approaches while working with some of the best print-making studios in the United States and Italy. Many of the leading, ground-breaking American abstract artists experienced success in post-war Europe. Nevelson was notably well-embraced in Italy arguably because of parallels to Arte Povera in her work. She had an important and enduring connection to Italy, beginning with representing America at the Venice Biennale in 1962. Nevelson would then exhibit at the legendary Studio Marconi in Milan during the succeeding decades. This fruitful relationship led Nevelson to start working with Italian printmakers during the 1970s. This impressive aquatint is a paradigm of both the era and Nevelson's later printmaking, notable for its use of metallic elements, color, and collage. This work features unexpected shades of magenta, lime green, and rust, which punctuate her signature monochromatic black forms that sweep the surface of the page creating an intriguing architectural form. This work is an example from Nevelson's 1973 portfolio, "Aquatints Portfolio (B. 116)" which comprised six aquatints with metallic elements. Click here to see another example from this body of work.
