Richard Tuttle is an American postminimalist artist who was born in Rahway, New Jersey. He studied at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and, after his receiving his B.A. in 1963, moved to New York to study at Cooper Union while working at the Betty Parsons Gallery. Betty Parsons gave him his first show in 1964. While his minimalist work had difficulty being accepted by viewers in the United States, Tuttle's reputation flourished in Europe. Tuttle is known for making use of scale and line, while also working small. His works range from sculpture, drawing, printmaking, painting, artist's books to installation. In 1975, Tuttle had a survey exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Art and, in 2005, had a retrospective of his 40-year career at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Tuttle is currently represented by the Pace Gallery, the Annemarie Verna Galerie in Zurich, and Galerie Schmela in Dusselfdorf, Germany. He has received the 74th American Exhibition, the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture in 1998, and the Art Institute of Chicago Biennial Prize, amongst many others.
