Donald Judd


Donald Judd is a pivotal figure in the history of Minimalist Art. Initially trained as a painter, Judd abandoned painting for sculpture in 1962 to produce three-dimensional objects called “Specific Objects.” Untitled (1968), one of a series of vertical wall stacks Judd produced after 1965, consists of ten, equally proportioned and sized boxes of stainless steel and amber-colored plexi-glass. This artwork is an example of Judd’s ability to eliminate the presence of the artist in order to produce work devoid of meaning with a focus on the purity and form of physical materials.
