Richard Tuttle

American, Born 1941

A prominent figure of Post-Minimalism, Richard Tuttle was born and raised in New Jersey. He received a Bachelor of Art degree from Trinity College in Hartford and attended classes at Pratt Institute and Cooper Union, both in New York. His first solo exhibition was at Betty Parsons Gallery in New York in September 1965. The Vogels were first introduced to Tuttleā€™s work at his 1968 show, Ten New Works by Richard Tuttle, and they have maintained a longtime friendship with the artist best represented in their collection. Tuttle has received numerous grants and awards, including a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1968 and the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture in 1998. A major retrospective of his work was organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2005, which travelled to five venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Des Moines Art Center, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
