August 17, 2016

Apart from being one of the most important theoreticians of Minimalism, Robert Morris is also known as one of the most important environmental artists. He is better known as a conceptualist, sculptor, but many of his land and environmental art projects concern environmental issues. For example, during the 1970s, Morris began creating figurative art, much of it dealing with the fear of a nuclear war. One of his most notable land art pieces is The Observatory, located in Flevoland, in the Netherlands. This environment art piece is known for its references to Stonehenge in England.
