Description

Richard Serra, American minimalist sculptor and video artist, was born on November 2, 1939 in San Francisco, California. Serra was best known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra studied at University of California, Berkeley and University of California, Santa Barbara for his undergraduate studies. He studied art under Rico Lebrun while at Santa Barbara. He received his Masters of Fine Arts at Yale University, School of Art and Architecture in 1964.

He was inspired mostly by artists who taught at Yale University. He continued his training abroad, spending a year in Florence and Paris. In 1964, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for Rome, and since then, he has lived in New York.
