What inspired Carl Andre?
Influences. Carl Andre was influenced by hard-line minimalists such as Constantin Brancusi and Frank Stella.
Brancusi used simple shapes to refine his sculpture, leading to similar decisions in Andre's late 50s pieces that had carved away matter so that eventually, the work became a block or cube of material.
