sol lewitt
unlike a lot of 'minimalists' work, i liked sol's work. i didn't know him, never met him but it sure seems like he was very well respected. not just for his art though, for his character.

Sol LeWitt, a Hartford-born artist known as one of America's most significant visual artists of the past four decades, died this morning in New York City at the age of 78.The modest artist, an innovator in minimalism and conceptual art, eschewed fame and celebrity.
"He never felt that art has to do with the personality of the person who made it," says Andrea Miller-Keller, former curator of contemporary art at Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum and a longtime friend and collaborator who is regarded as a foremost interpreter of his work. "It's not about the star power but about the art."...............
