Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book explores Judd's history, politics, and biography in a way that is both fascinating and dense, approachable and abstract—echoing the strangely affecting nature of the work itself." —Cindy Widner, Austin Chronicle
(Cindy Widner Austin Chronicle)

"Raskin's monograph is a dense critical commentary on an artist whose work is due for precisely this kind of revisiting."—G. R. Brown, CHOICE
(G. R. Brown CHOICE)

"[A] must-have. . . . Remarkably, the first major monograph devoted to Judd."—Dyal Blog
(Dyal Blog)

“Referencing Judd’s writings, interviews, and works as well as those of many art critics, philosophers, scholars, and artists, this generously illustrated book (60 color and 80 monochrome reproductions) featuring creations by Judd and many contemporary artists is well documented, nicely presented, and intellectually stimulating.”—Library Journal
(Library Journal)

“With this elegant book, Judd’s multicolored works receive the thoughtful attention and recognition they deserve.”—Publishers Weekly
(Publishers Weekly)

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who cares about the ways artists use materials to create artworks that have significant meaning should read this book. Raskin starts with some of the most apparently austere art of the twentieth century--Donald Judd's so-called 'minimal' sculptures comprised of industrial materials like steel, plywood, plexiglass, and concrete--and shows that they are properly understood when we see them as creating relationships of values. In Raskin's challenging but rewarding account, Judd's art turns out to be not just another post-war instance of art's 'reduction' to ever more attenuated forms (as pedestrian histories of minimalism would have it), but about the most important things in experience; namely, about our modes of encountering the world and others. Raskin helps us see what Judd called art's "scale": not just a property of objects, but an articulation of an individual's ways of thinking, feeling, and believing.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully produced book, lavishly illustrated. The text is less impressive: it's very argumentative without actually following through with a convincing case. It's one of those aggressive books young men tend to write that tries to sweep away all the big names but without carefully unpacking an alternative case. The best chapter is on Judd's engagment with politics where this is less evident. The actual engagement with Judd's work is cursory and a bit pedestrian.

great artist. The reading is intellectuallly dense for me and their were other artists included in the book, perhaps because Judd himself was a critic.

Format: Hardcover
Raskin's study is at once wide-ranging in its erudition, yet accessible and a pleasure to read. It is a major addition to the literature on Judd and, indeed, Minimalism.
