As a founder of Minimalism, a style of radical simplification that emerged in the 1960s, Robert Morris was one of the most controversial American sculptors of his time. The artist believed geometric shapes and industrial fabrication were means of reducing art to its most basic and universal components. This austere form leans heavily against the wall, relying on the architecture for its structure and highlighting the interdependence of art and its environment.

An untitled monumental stone sculpture by Morris is located on the plaza behind the Seiberling Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at Main and Market Streets.
