Donald Judd regarded color as one of the most important aspects of his art. This publication concentrates in detail for the first time on this crucial aspect of his work.
Donald Judd, the great American sculptor, architect and furniture designer, regarded color as one of the most important aspects of his art, on an equal level with material and space. He continually explored the creative possibilities of color in his works and in his theoretical writings. Especially from the mid-1980s on, he integrated color intensively into his objects in a wide variety of different combinations. Up till now, the significance of color has largely been neglected in the reception of his oeuvre. This publication, lavishly illustrated with full-page color pictures, concentrates in detail for the first time on this crucial aspect of Donald Judd's work. With selected theoretical texts by the artist and impressive essays by art experts, it offers insight into the complexity of his artistic thought.
