One of the most important
American artists of the post-war period, Donald Judd has come to define Minimalist art - a label he strongly objected to. His unaffected, straightforward approach and strong
interest in colour, form, material and space, allowed him to create work with a direct material and physical 'presence' without recourse to grand philosophical statements. This book presents works from Judd's seminal
1989 exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Consisting of twelve identically scaled anodized aluminium works, this historic exhibition was the first time Judd presented coloured anodized aluminium in a large, floor-mounted format. Donald Judd includes new scholarship on Judd by art historian Richard Shiff, as well as archival material and interviews with the artist.
