Minimal ArtSelected works from The Holmes à Court Collection

26 August - 26 August 2001

The simplicity and purity of design which marked the rise of Minimal art in the 1960s introduced a new concept of idealism. In their painting and sculpture, New York artists such as Frank Stella and Carl Andre achieved a physical legitimacy that depended upon the essence of shape and the nature of materials.

 

Artists included: Howard Taylor, Robert Hunter, Janenne Eaton, Margery Edwards, Michael Johnson, Rosslynd Piggot and Brian McKay.
