Anne Truitt

Anne Truitt was an influential American artist whose work was both critically and commercially successful. Her hard-edged, minimalist sculptures were celebrated for their subtlety and refinement, and her use of a restrained range of hues and a variety of hardwoods as her primary medium. Her works often employed a single, continuous form as a basic structure, with other shapes and lines joining to it, creating a dynamic balance between shapes, planes and colors. Truitt was also a prolific writer, exploring the relationship between art and spirituality in her journals, essays and short stories. Her writings have been an inspiration to many artists and designers, and her ability to create works that are visually striking and emotionally powerful has been widely admired.
