Anne Truitt - A Wall for Apricots

We just learned about the Bronze Gate by Robert Morris.

Another famous work of American art is A Wall for Apricots made in Baltimore in 1968.

Truitt was born in Maryland in 1921, and grew up in North Carolina.
She went to college for psychology, and then later went to study art.

Like other American artists at the time, she was famous for the Minimalist style that was very simple.
Her sculpture called A Wall for Apricots is a 6 foot tall rectangle block of wood painted in white, green and yellow.
