Judd Foundation is pleased to share that the exhibition Paintings 1959–1961 is on view at Gagosian in New York. Curated by Flavin Judd, Artistic Director of Judd Foundation, the exhibition presents fifteen paintings by Donald Judd.

While Judd’s oeuvre is defined principally through his three-dimensional work—which he conceived in opposition to the essential properties of both conventional painting and sculpture—he began his practice as a painter. The paintings on view precede relief works made later in 1961 in which Judd incorporated found objects. Featuring biomorphic shapes in blue and purple, as well as fields of white, black, gray, and cadmium red, the paintings reflect an exploratory approach to formal issues of structure, materiality, and color.
