Donald Clarence Judd (June 3, 1928 – February 12, 1994) was an American player associated gone minimalism (a term he nonetheless stridently disavowed). In his work, Judd sought autonomy and clarity for the build up object and the proclaim created by it, ultimately achieving a rigorously democratic presentation without compositional hierarchy. He is generally considered the leading international exponent of "minimalism," and its most important theoretician through such writings as "Specific Objects" (1964). Judd voiced his unorthodox keenness of minimalism in Arts Yearbook 8, where he asserts; "The additional three dimensional appear in doesn't constitute a movement, school, or style. The common aspects are too general and too little common to clarify a movement. The differences are greater than the similarities."
