Since Donald Judd died in 1994, the Minimalist artist’s enormous ranch and sculpture museum in Marfa, Texas, has been a necessary pilgrimage site for artists, scholars, and other devotees willing to travel to the former desert Army base. Now the Judd Foundation has returned the favor, bringing a compelling slice of the artist’s enclave directly to his fans — specifically the artist’s extraordinarily rich, idiosyncratic library, which is now available in virtual form online.
Consisting of 13,004 books in 40 languages, the library — divided between two spaces in the city-block-sized residence — was the product of four decades of collecting, and was meticulously arranged and tended exclusively by Judd himself.
