Donald Judd Woodblock Prints

art & illustration

Donald Judd (1928-1994) was a minimalist sculptor that we admire here at Minimalissimo. Whilst he is perhaps best known for his strictly geometrical sculptures and installations, he also worked as a printmaker, a side of his career which seems to be lesser-known.

Working mainly with woodblock prints, these works share the same keen eye for composition, form and color as his sculptural works, except that they are, of course, reduced to 2D.

I think the relationship between these works and his three-dimensional works is interesting.  Side by side they seem like sketches or mockups for his sculpture, but on their own they can definitely be appreciated as fully formed, beautiful graphics.
