Sol LeWitt 1928–2007
Solomon ‘Sol’ LeWitt had a major impact on the Conceptual Art movement through his distinctive approach to creating artwork intuitively. Born in Connecticut in 1928, LeWitt went on to receive his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1949. In 1951, he was drafted for the Korean War where his duties included creating posters for the Special Services Division. Following his release, he moved to New York where he studied at, what is now, the School of Visual Arts while interning as a graphic designer for several magazines including Seventeen. He was employed by the architectural office of I.M Pei in 1955, and in 1960 he worked as a receptionist at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
