    Richard Serra

    American • 1938

    Richard Serra is an American artist typically associated with Minimalism and the Process Art movement. Though perhaps best known for his monumental works of sculpture made from industrial steel, Serra has also worked extensively in painting and printmaking. After attending the University of California, Berkeley, he earned his MFA from Yale, where he became friends and collaborators with classmates such as Frank Stella, Chuck Close and Nancy Graves (to whom Serra was married for five years). Later working in New York, Serra was inspired by contemporaries such as Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt, all of whom valued the work of creation far more than the finished artwork itself. 

    Serra’s work is installed permanently at the Guggenheim Bilbao, and can also be found in the collections of Dia:Beacon, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Tate.
