Donald Judd (1928-1994)
untitled Donald Judd (1928 - 1994)
I met Donald Judd for the
first time at the opening of an exhibition of graphic work by Barnett Newman in
the Abteiberg Museum in Mönchengladbach, Germany. He had heard that I owned
some wood and steel church benches by Gerrit Rietveld and wanted to purchase
one from me; I suggested we trade something for it.
We did and a year after that we met again in the van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. He asked me if we could trade two more for another of his works. We did that and I drove to his place in Eichholteren Küsnacht am Rigi - Switzerland in 1988, taking my friend and colleague, Wim Smits, along with me.
