Sol Lewitt was an American artist known for his involvement in multiple movements such as minimalism and conceptual art. This plate is part of a series made while Lewitt was living in Italy, after discovering locally made Maiolica pottery. Maiolica is a centuries old practice of applying a glossy white base glaze onto pottery, then painting vivid colors on top.
