DRAWING SERIES 1968 (FOURS) IN STUDIO INTERNATIONAL APRIL, 1969 VOL177 NR 910

£275.00

London: Studio International, 1969
31 x 24.5cm, serially numbered (c.72pp including adverts) plus pictorial wrappers with a special cover design by Donald Judd. The Lewitt original pagework consists of 1pp on Pg 189 and is a conceptually generated series of drawings based on a grid of 4 x 4 squares with the density and direction of hatching in each square changing in each new drawing. The magazine had dedicated much of the issue to the minimalist trend in art and there are additional to the Lewitt significant texts by Judd and Flavin, a essay by Smithson on Aerial Art, an original contribution by Carl Andre (An opera by Carl Andre) and b/w illustrations throughout of various works. Some spine damage to the top and bottom (tears c. 5cm/ 4cm in length) and minor edge wear but this is a scarce and somewhat significant number from the long-running and important art journal. The Lewitt pagework is usually cited as the artist’s fourth bookwork in catalogue raisonnes.
