Areford, David S. Strict Beauty: SOL LEWITT Prints. 288 pages, including 416 color and 6 b&w plates. 4to, boards. New Haven, Yale University Press, 2020.
The conceptual artist Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) is best known for his programmatic wall drawings and modular structures, but alongside these works he generated more than 350 print projects, comprising thousands of lithographs, silkscreens, etchings, aquatints, woodcuts, and linocuts. This generously illustrated volume is the first to take a comprehensive look at LeWitt's significant yet underexplored printmaking practice. With over 400 illustrations, many never before published, this study offers a more complete picture of LeWitt's oeuvre-and situates LeWitt's prints within the broader context of his serial-, system-, and rule-based approach to artmaking.
