Mangold has been a major figure in the investigation of geometric abstraction since the 1960s. He helped deliver the first Sol LeWitt sculpture to the Vogel's apartment in 1965, and became one of the Vogel's first "artist-friends." That same year, The Jewish Museum in New York organized the first major exhibition of minimal art, and included the work of Robert Mangold. His works, which often refer to architecture elements, are comprised of simple shapes and lines, put together in a complex way.
