Minimalism, originating in the 1960s, sought to simplify artistic expression by emphasizing geometric shapes, clean lines, and a reduction of elements to essential forms. Artists such as Donald Judd, Frank Stella, and Agnes Martin rejected excessive ornamentation, focusing on the inherent qualities of materials and the viewer’s experience of space. Minimalism aimed to create a direct, unmediated encounter between the artwork and the observer, influencing various fields, including sculpture, painting, and design.
