Description
All of artist Sol LeWitt's books are collected in this volume from the beginning of 1967, the last works of 2002: the works in which the systematic rationalism, in its extreme, results in a sort of immaterial mysticism. Accompanied by valuable evidence of the artist himself, the works in book form by Sol LeWitt build with its exhibitions of design affinity relationships and poetic, rather than formal. In other words, the book is not "copy" of painting, but a mirror and a different angle from which to observe the same idea.
The volume includes contributions by Giorgio Maffei, Emanuele De Donno, Didi Bozzini, Cecilia Metelli, Marilena Bonomo; also it includes an anthology of critical essays and a bibliography around the American artist editorial work. Sol LeWitt (Hartford, 1928 - New York, 2007) was tied to the movement of conceptual art and minimalism, and has mainly explored the theme of the link between an idea and the work it produces. In Italy, he stayed a long time in Spoleto. Giorgio Maffei and Emanuele De Donno are scholars and experts of artist books. With Corraini, Giorgio Maffei has already published "Watching keep telling thinking" (2004, edited by Anne-Moeglin Delcroix), "The book as a work of art" (2006, with Maura Picciau), "Children's Corner" (2007, Valerio Dehò, Barbara Nesticò and Annie Pissard), "Arte Povera. Books and documents "(2007) and" Munari Books "(2008).
