The Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné is the definitive publication of LeWitt’s most celebrated body of work. The catalogue features complete caption information for LeWitt’s approximately 1,350 wall drawings, many of them newly discovered, as well as current collection information, complete installation histories, and selected bibliographies. Nearly every first installation of each wall drawing is illustrated with an archival photograph, and additional images detail subsequent installations where possible—approximately 6,000 images in total. Select entries feature quotations from LeWitt’s writings and interviews, rarely-seen installation videos, and in one case, an audio file of LeWitt delivering installation instructions for the exhibition Art by Telephone at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in 1969.
Detailed notes by Editor Lindsay Aveilhé and Director of Research Christopher Vacchio highlight the evolution of many wall drawings and call out important distinctions from one installation to the next. Also included are reproductions of the wall drawing diagrams—schematics that indicate how a work is to be installed—and facsimiles of original manuscripts in the artist’s hand.
The Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné research team is eager to receive any information or documents pertaining to the artist’s wall drawings. Any and all anecdotes about the installation, exhibition, or ownership of these works, as well as bibliographical references and visual material are also welcome.
All information will be kept strictly confidential, and all photographic prints will be returned upon request.
