    Sol Lewitt is renowned as a founding member of both the Minimalist and the Conceptual art movements. His early influence was the cube which evolved to the creation of his popular open modular forms. Lewitt has always focused on the reduction of art to it's most basic elements of color, line, and shape. In this work, "Untitled (Lines In Color)," the composition is created by using undulating lines of pure color, painted with horizontal lines that seem to float across the paper. His choice of color as well as the width and rhythmic movement of the line are critical and this composition is a excellent example of Lewitt's technical skill as an artist.

    Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
