Agnes Martin’s career spanned over seven decades. Though a major influence on Minimalist painters, Martin saw her own work, more closely related to Abstract Expressionism, her paintings being ‘meditations on innocence, beauty, happiness and love.’
Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances is the first and only complete career retrospective publication of the visionary painter. This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin’s paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art.
Pace Gallery founder, Arne Glimcher’s illuminating introduction, his personal remembrances of visits to Martin at her studio, and their correspondence throughout her career, reveal much about the artist’s life and work.
