FROM THE PROPERTY OF THE BELO COLLECTION

While known primarily for his reductive three-dimensional forms, Donald Judd also pursued printmaking using similar strategies throughout his artistic career. Judd's rectilinear compositions and pure palettes were subject to variations using almost mathematical strategies, culminating in a simplicity rarely matched. These two color lithographs from 1992, published by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth are wonderful examples of the artist's conceptual methods and formal execution. Though deemed a "minimalist" (a term he detested), Judd much preferred that his work be viewed as "empirical" and based on a knowledge derived from actual experience and observation.

Judd, Donald:Donald Judd was born in Missouri and served in the military from 1946–1947. He started out studying engineering. In 1957, he attended art classes in Columbia University as well as studied philosophy. Donald's studies also included night classes. In that same year, Judd's first painting was displayed in New York. He then went on to show his work in the Green Gallery in 1963, and his first floor box assembly was created in 1964. Donald Judd was known for seeking autonomy while attaining a democratic exhibition. His work supported the term minimalism. Throughout his career, he did business quite often with his father Roy Judd by his side. By the end of 1964, he started creating his work on wall-mounted sculptures. Judd used processed steel, plywood and concrete for his Minimalist sculptures. His experience with sculpting influenced him to teach sculpture at Yale in New Haven. Judd's main source of income was writing for various American art magazines from 1959 through 1965. In the early 70's he had the pleasure of participating in an award exhibition at the Solomon Museum in New York. Donald began designing furniture in the early 80's which opened the door for him to draw the plans for the Chinati Foundation. A few years later, the newly resurrected assembly of buildings opened up to the pubic which displayed his artistry through his sculptures. They showcased the work of other artists as well. He later went on to publish and promote two volumes of his writings for which he won many awards and prizes up through 1987. Donald Judd passed away in NewYork in February of 1994.
