Sol LeWitt (1928 - 2007) was an American artist linked to various movements, including Conceptual art and Minimalism. LeWitt
, whose art is rooted in basic geometry, rose to fame in the late 1960s with his wall drawings and "structures" but
was prolific in a wide range of media including drawing, printmaking, and
"A deconsecrated church at Brunate La Morra is now the very colourful Capella del Barolo, the result of a deal made by wine growers Bruno and Marcello Ceretto with American artists Sol Lewitt and David Tremlett, who painted it in return for a constant supply of Barolo."
