Methods and materials in modern and contemporary art

Consider Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #552D in the context of the revival of drawing in the 1960s. Why did drawing appeal to LeWitt and his peers and why had it been neglected by the previous generation of American artists. Wall Drawing #552D is currently installed in the Gilbert Court of the Morgan Library (225 Madison Avenue).
Make sure to elaborate on how Sol Lewitt and his peers want to use drawing to create artworks that are more geometric and mechanical unlike Abstract Expressionists like Pollock, they want to create distance between artworks and artists. And also be sure to talk about the techniques and materials.
