Richard Tuttle

The website for the US Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) has provided resource on the American postminimalist artist, Richard Tuttle (b.1941) as part of their Art21 series. Tuttle is best known for his small subtle intimate works of art that deal with issues of scale and problems of line. His work is influence by calligraphy, poetry and language, and he has created artists' books, as well as sculptural pieces, which he refers to as drawings rather than sculptures. This website provides a slideshows of the artist's work, which can be viewed as a whole or organized in decades for 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Another slideshow shows the artist at work. There are also two interviews with the artist on 'Art and Life' and 'Drawings and Exhibitions'. Four short videos illustrating the artist's work are also provided.
