For Donald Judd, works of art had to provoke visual sensations, which could be immediately identified and understood. They should not refer to anything else other than themselves, their shape, medium, color, space, and order. Famous for his sculptures made of colored, geometrical boxes constructed from industrial materials installed either on the wall or on the floor, and for his furniture Judd is now consideredone of the most prominent artists of the second half of the twentieth century.


Donald Judd was born in 1928, Excelsior Springs and died in 1994, New York.

 

Donald Judd's work has been widely exhibited in the most prestigious institutions around the world, including MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum in New York and Tate Modern in London. His works can also be seen in Marfa, Texas, where he lived and worked for the last twenty years of his life and where many permanent installations are located at both the Judd and Chinati Foundation's.
