From the Estate of Judith E. Neisser

One of Chicago’s most notable art patrons, Judith E. Neisser amassed a spectacular collection throughout her lifetime. A design and architecture critic early on, Neisser’s discerning eye lead her to collect historically significant works of Minimal and Conceptual art from the 1960s and 70s, many of which have found their way into the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago and The Art Institute of Chicago through her generous endowments. Later in life, Neisser split her time between a home in Aspen and a sleek condo in Chicago, both residences designed by Chicago-based architects, Stanley Tigerman and Margaret McCurry, where contemporary art hung alongside significant ethnographic works. Wright is pleased to offer a selection of works from her ethnographic and design collection.

Sol LeWitt 1928–2007

Solomon ‘Sol’ LeWitt had a major impact on the Conceptual Art movement through his distinctive approach to creating artwork intuitively. Born in Connecticut in 1928, LeWitt went on to receive his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1949. In 1951, he was drafted for the Korean War where his duties included creating posters for the Special Services Division. Following his release, he moved to New York where he studied at, what is now, the School of Visual Arts while interning as a graphic designer for several magazines including Seventeen. He was employed by the architectural office of I.M Pei in 1955, and in 1960 he worked as a receptionist at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
