Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Bruce Nauman and Richard Serra belong to the 'classical ' generation that gave direction to American art from the mid-sixties. They show a clear affinity with Minimal and Conceptual Art.
The four artists are paragons of new options in the art of painting, exploring the potential of architectural or public spaces.
The drawings no longer revolvd around the personal style, but enter a specific relationship with the Wall( Sol LeWitt), the painting ( Robert Mangold), the sculpture(Richard Serra) and the public space ( Bruse Nauman).

According to Bonnefatenmuseum " neutrality is the goal and art is reduced to an instrument used for a " mechanical" execution that allows the preclusion of too much expressivity.Sol LeWitt takes anonymity the furthest. The fact that he opted for his work to be carried out by assistants speaks volumes..."
LeWitt was born in Connecticut to a family of Jewish immigrants from Russia. He followed art classes in Hartford and moved to New York City in 1953. There he stadied at the School of Visual Arts together with his work as a graphic designer in an architecture office. His art- work was influenced of the late 19th century photographer Muybridge and his exhibition  "Sixteen Americans- 1960" at the  MoMA together with fellow artists Ryman, Flavin and Robert Mangold created a big discussion among the artistic community of those days.
LeWitt tought at New York University and the School of Visual Arts. He is regarded as a founder of Minimal and Conceptual art.
