Description

A conceptual artist, LeWitt began drawing directly on walls in the late 1960s and early '70s in order to create works unconstrained by paper. He developed a system of ownership by which the buyer of the drawing receives a certificate and a rendering with directions for any other drafter to use. In this way, LeWitt opens up the work to the interpretation of the drafter. Although conceived by LeWitt, this particular version was accomplished by representatives from LeWitt's studio in concert with museum installation staff.
