One of 70 Copies

[Sol LeWitt Portfolio].

10 lithographed plates, loose as issued. Large square 4to (285 x 285 mm.), lithographed covers, artist’s name on spine. Torino: Noire Editore, 1998.

One of LeWitt’s rarest artist’s books, signed and numbered on the colophon; only 70 copies were produced. LeWitt and the gallery Marco Noire partnered on a number of editions and exhibitions in the 80s and 90s, starting with Piramidi (1986). This edition, with the publisher’s illustrated slip-case, is among the hardest of LeWitt’s editioned books and portfolios to find. There are 10 loose lithographs and two that serve as the portfolio covers, for a total of 12 called for in the Krakow Witkin catalogue raisonné (see below). LeWitt has signed and numbered (no. 20) the inside of the portfolio’s upper cover. The signatures found in the lower right corner of each loose lithograph are printed, not manuscript.

In fine condition; with the publisher’s partial slip-case (as issued). Unrecorded on WorldCat.
