Item description for Sol LeWitt: Seven Basic Colors and All Their Combinations in a Square Within a Square by Heinz Liesbrock...
Josef Albers and Sol LeWitt are split by fundamentally different understandings of their work, but united by a powerful, overarching and defining goal, the avoidance of emphatic ideas of authorship and the de-emphasis, even, of the star system inside an author's own oeuvre. Both keep their works from getting uppity by making each one part of a serial long-term study, rather than an individual potential masterpiece. LeWitt acknowledges and pays tribute to Albers's significance in his artistic development, and to the two men's connections, in Seven Basic Colors and All Their Combinations in a Square Within a Square, the title wall drawing, installed in the Josef Albers Museum Quadrat in Bottrop and reproduced here in its entirety.
