Paula Cooper recently presented a sensational installation of Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawing #564, which was originally conceived for the 1988 Venice Biennale.
I was knocked out by a few of LeWitt's small geometric studies on paper, hung near the front desk.
Walking into the rear gallery was like entering an old Italian church in which each wall was divided into segments and lavishly painted from floor to ceiling. Instead of depicting religious stories and saints, however, the LeWitt drawing features isolated, multifaceted geometric forms.

When it comes to rendering the multifaceted geometric form, LeWitt is the master.
