Middle: an open glass door. We leave the Rothko exhibition, and partly through, partly reflected in the glass of the door we see the broad lines of Wall Drawing # 373 by LeWitt which adorns since 1983 – with an interruption of two years – one of the stairwells of the Gemeentemuseum. A woman with a stick looks a bit lost.
Left: lines of LeWitt’s drawing on walls of the stairwell.
The more I look at this photo, the more I am intrigued by it. The four vertical bands that make up the entire picture show each quite distinct features, with a variation in perspectives of flatness and depth. Still, the overall visual impression is one of the flat plane of a painting.
