Donald Judd and Judd Foundation
It is impossible to consider the history of American art without Donald Judd. He played an essential role in the development of modernism and was as respected by his peers as he is revered by artists working today. We got to know each other in New York in the early 1980s and he was one of the first artists whose work I really admired. The use of color and proportion, together with a unique combination of rigor and elegance, was incredibly powerful and remains essential today. Being a partner in realizing his vision and presenting his work as he intended is a great honor for me and the gallery.
Gagosian is pleased to announce the representation of the work of Donald Judd and Judd Foundation. The partnership underscores the gallery’s more than forty-year commitment to critical artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
