Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt: Conceptual Color in Print

October 17, 2009March 7, 2010

Donald Judd was a major figure in the Minimalist art movement in the 1960s when he and others sought to create a depersonalized art in which the physical properties of space, scale, and materials were explored as phenomena of interest on their own. Judd’s use of color in three print series dating from 1988 to 1993 are on view along with a recent acquisition, Untitled (1993). Judd’s prints are compared and contrasted with prints by his peer, Sol LeWitt. Although identified as a Minimalist artist, LeWitt helped establish Conceptualism as one of the dominant movements of the postwar era. LeWitt’s prints from the early 1970s, made at Kathan Brown’s then-fledgling Crown Point Press, are included as well as his color woodcut, Arcs from Four Corners (1986).
