Untitled (Donald Judd never titled his art) was commercially fabricated according to the artist’s detailed specifications. Its industrial finish and perfectly rectilinear shape have a transcendent purity seemingly untouched by human hands. The artist strove to produce sculpture that was stripped of references to narrative or other art by turning to ideal geometric forms and industrial materials. Critics and some artists described this type of art, which emerged in New York in the 1960s, as “minimalist.” Judd preferred “empiricist” because—like scientific experiments—the meaning of his art came exclusively through what the viewer observed through the senses.
