one more reason i love sol lewitt...

sol lewitt paper fold 1973

from a letter printed in a 1973 artforum magazine...

sirs:

since 1967 i have been doing folded paper drawings and torn paper drawings. i wanted them to be relatively inexpensive so that they would available to many people. the price was $100 each. some dealers, however, have sold them for more. if anyone has paid more than $100 for one of these drawings, please go back to the dealer from whom it was bought and get a refund for the difference.

How fantastic is that letter? Loving Sol Lewitt even more for it myself.
Used to live in Pasadena before... On the hills before Eagle Rocks... Loved it!
