"Art Dealer Monolith Leo Castelli Dies at 91"
1999-08-24 until 1999-08-24

New York, NY, USA United States of America

Castelli discovered and promoted many contemporary American artists who could now be considered modern masters. Representing Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Robert Morris, Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Noland, Cy Twombly, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra and Andy Warhol, Castelli could be credited for selling Europe on contemporary American art. It has also been said that his keen eye for what would sell shaped and directed the 1960s art trends towards pop-art, minimalism and conceptual art the successors of abstract expressionism. After a short illness Leo Castelli died at home in New York. On Sunday evening a small private service was held at his residence.
