[Autom. eng. transl.] The relationship between Sol LeWitt's art and modernism is evident. It is especially so in the works created since 1962 when, after the experience of abstract expressionist painting in Wall Structure Blue, he implements a shift towards the abstract, iconic purity of perception of the object. In the same year the artist created three three-dimensional works that explore the intersection between two rectilinear geometric shapes and a solid volume, on one side, an articulated segment, on the other. At the center of his attention is the search for an absolute, modular form, a sort of formal icon that makes the different forms of reality's forms universal. In other words, he begins to develop the minimalist idea that will mature in the "Paraghraphs on Conceptual Art" of 1967.
