Donald Judd (1928–1994) was one of the foremost American artists of the postwar era and a major figure in the Minimal Art movement. He revolutionized practices and attitudes surrounding art-making and the exhibition of art, advocating for the permanent installation of works by artists in carefully considered environments. Judd achieved this goal first at his studio/residence at 101 Spring Street in New York, which he first purchased in 1968, and in later years, various locations in and around Marfa, Texas.

Judd filled 101 Spring Street with nearly 2,000 objects (200 pieces of art and furniture, 1,800 household objects), from rare prototypes and seminal works to prosaic furnishings he used everyday. His collection spans centuries of art and design, and reflects his personal interest in art and well-made things: paintings, sculpture and works on paper by Jean Arp, Larry Bell, John Chamberlain, Honoré Daumier, Stuart Davis, Marcel Duchamp, Dan Flavin, David Novros, Claes Oldenburg, Ad Reinhardt, Lucas Samaras, Frank Stella, and H.C. Westermann; furniture, including pieces by Alvar Aalto, Gerrit Rietveld, and the Thonet firm; and ceremonial and decorative objects and textiles from Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America. Judd included his own artwork as well as furniture he designed.

After 1972 Judd spent some of his time in Marfa, Texas, but he continued to use 101 Spring Street as a live/work studio until his death in 1994.

Robert Beyer is the Treasurer of the Judd Foundation, based in New York City. The Judd Foundation owns, maintains and preserves Donald Judd’s permanently installed living and working spaces, libraries, and archives at 101 Springs Street in New York City and in Marfa, Texas. The Foundation promotes a wider understanding of Judd’s artistic legacy by providing access to these spaces and resources and by developing scholarly and educational programs.
