About the work

In the 1990s, LeWitt departed from cubes and geometric lines to depict wavy, free-flowing brushstrokes. Though LeWitt rarely executed his works (such as his iconic wall drawings) by hand, the conceptual artist decided to paint these squiggly brushstrokes himself, creating original gouache compositions that are now among his most desirable works on the market. Between 1993 and 1997, LeWitt experimented with his brushstrokes motif through printmaking, repeating the forms in different orientations, colors, and techniques, such as etching, silkscreen, and photolithography.
