Zeit contemporary

Founded in 2016 in New York City, Zeit Contemporary Art specializes in modern, post-war, and contemporary art with a focus on Europe and the Americas. Our mission is deeply committed to the understanding of art as a complex cultural object that defines the time and space where it is created.

ZCA organizes four carefully curated exhibitions a year both on contemporary artists and historically focused projects. Previous exhibitions and online viewing rooms include critically acclaimed projects such as Minimal Means: Concrete Inventions in the US, Brazil, and Spain (2019), Andy Warhol: The Last Decade (2020), Painting Abstraction: 197X – Today (2021), and Lilt, Joy, and Clarity: The Prints of Ellsworth Kelly (2022).

ZCA was founded by Joan Robledo-Palop, a collector and art historian graduated from the universities of Valencia, Madrid, and Yale, where he wrote his master’s thesis on the art of Francisco de Goya. In addition to his graduate studies, Robledo-Palop has been a Research Fellow at the Institute of History in the Spanish National Research Council - CSIC, and a Visiting Scholar at New York University.

As a well-known scholar of modern and contemporary art, he has published, taught, and given public lectures at Yale, The School of Visual Arts in New York, University College Cork, Ireland, The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, Centre Pompidou Málaga and The Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.

At Zeit Contemporary Art, Joan Robledo-Palop merges his experience as a scholar, curator, and art market specialist to build world-class collections of modern and contemporary art inspired by innovation and connoisseurship.

Zeit contemporary - Sol LE WITT, Grilel irrégulière




Irregular Grid, 1999

Gouache on paper
575 x 568 mm
This drawing is signed and dated in pencil on the lower right corner.


Sol LeWitt’s Irregular Grid from 1999 stands as a testament to his relentless exploration of geometric abstraction and his remarkable ability to infuse simplicity with profound complexity. Initiated in the 1970s, this series of gouaches and drawings are a departure from LeWitt’s earlier works characterized by strict geometrical regularity.

In the present gouache, LeWitt allows himself greater freedom, introducing subtle variations that give the work an organic and hand-drawn quality, even though this gouache is meticulously executed according to predetermined guidelines. The variations present in this composition within a system is the hallmark of LeWitt’s ingenuity, demonstrating how a seemingly irregular grid can possess its own unique sense of order and logic.
