SFMOMA buys a work by Sol Le Witt
I often wonder how work that is this intellectual and non-emotional will hold up. Will the next generation care about it the way we care about Rembrandt and Matisse? I don't find him very interesting myself but I do realize that conceptual art is the flavor of the decade (for some).
Yesterday, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) announced the acquisition of Wall Grid (3 x 3) (1966), an important early work by Sol LeWitt, one of the key artists of the postwar period.
