Monday Morning Museum: Minimalism

Minimalism – Began in the 1960s

Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is set out to expose the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts. Minimalism is any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect. – Wikipedia.org
In addition to Frank Stella (see art example below), other Minimalists are Ellsworth Kelly, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Dan Falvin and Sol LeWitt.

Your Lips are Blue, 1958 by Frank Stella (1936-Present)
