More Sol LeWitt

A good article on Sol LeWitt which explains more about how the wall drawings are implemented in practice: http://www.greatwhatsit.com/archives/1379 You "buy" a wall drawing from its current owner; they paint it over and you get a draftsman to re-create it on your wall. It comes with a certificate of authenticity. (There is sometimes a diagram as well. A better picture of one can be found here: http://www.museoreinasofia.es/sites/default/files/salas/informacion/104.03_sol_lewitt_eng.pdf)

The important part of this process, of course, is that it preserves uniqueness. But it doesn't close the door on rogue implementations of the initial recipe. Here's Wall Drawing #47, although it is not on a wall and comes with no certificate, so of course it is not Wall Drawing #47 at all:
