"Minimalism is simple to the point of complexity," says Gilbert Brownstone, a curator in Palm Beach, Florida, and Paris. "It evokes a spiritual response from the viewer." That response is what provoked Brownstone and his wife, Catherine, to build their own minimalist collection, which now includes some 50 works. The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach is showing more than 25 of them in "Minimal to the Max: The Brownstone Collection." Featuring painting, sculpture, and work on paper from 1962 to 1990, the exhibition is exploring minimalism's effects in both the U.S. and Europe, particularly the movement's indirect influence on pop art.
