The first biography of visionary artist Agnes Martin, one of the most original and influential painters of the postwar period Over the course of a career that spanned fifty years, Agnes Martin’s austere, serene work anticipated and helped to define Minimalism, even as she battled psychological crises and carved out a solitary existence in the American Southwest. Martin identified with the Abstract Expressionists but her commitment to linear geometry caused her to be associated in turn with Minimalist, feminist, and even outsider artists. She moved through some of the liveliest art communities of her time while maintaining a legendary reserve. “I paint with my back to the world,” she says both at the beginning and at the conclusion of a documentary filmed when she was in her late eighties. When she died at ninety-two, in Taos, New Mexico, it is said she had not read a newspaper in half a century. No substantial critical monograph exists on this acclaimed artist—the recipient of two career retrospectives as well as the National Medal of the Arts—who was championed by critics as diverse in their approaches as Lucy Lippard, Lawrence Alloway, and Rosalind Krauss. Furthermore, no attempt has been made to describe her extraordinary life. The whole engrossing story, told here for the first time, Agnes Martin is essential reading for anyone interested in abstract art or the history of women artists in America.

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.' More than 130 of these works can be found in this book. 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 This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin's paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art. Letters and facsimiles are reprinted in Martin's own hand, and cut to notebook size, adding an element of intimacy for the reader. With the 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.

This will be the first traveling retrospective of the seminal painter since her death in 2004. Renowned for subtle, evocative paintings bridging abstract expressionism and surrealism to minimalist ideas, Martin had a deep conviction in the expressive power of art. The exhibition covers her output from the late 1950s to 2004 and positions Martin as a key figure in the male-dominated field of abstraction from her earliest output through the 1960s.On the occasion of the exhibition: AGNES MARTINTate Modern,London 3 June - 11 October 2015Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf7 November 2015 - 6 March 2016Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles24 April - 11 September 2016Solomon R.

Agnes Martin’s (1912–2004) celebrated grid paintings are widely acknowledged as a touchstone of postwar American art and have influenced many contemporary artists. Martin’s formative years, however, have been largely overlooked. In this revelatory study of Martin’s early artistic production, Christina Bryan Rosenberger demonstrates that the rapidly evolving creative processes and pictorial solutions Martin developed between 1940 and 1967 define all her subsequent art. Beginning with Martin’s initiation into artistic language at the University of New Mexico and concluding with the reception of her grid paintings in New York in the early 1960s, Rosenberger offers vivid descriptions of the networks of art, artists, and information that moved between New Mexico and the creative centers of New York and California in the postwar period. She also documents Martin’s exchanges with artists including Ellsworth Kelly, Barnett Newman, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ad Reinhardt, and Mark Rothko, among others. Rosenberger uses original analysis of Martin’s art, as well as a rich array of archival materials, to situate Martin’s art within the context of a dynamic historical moment. With a lively, innovative approach informed by art history and conservation, this fluidly written book makes a substantial contribution to the history of postwar American art.

I’ve shut the door on yesterday, It sorrows and mistakes; I’ve locked within its gloomy walls Past failures and heartaches And now I throw the key away To seek another room And furnish it with hope and smiles, And every springtime bloom. No thought shall enter this abode That has a hint of pain, And every malice and distrust Shall never therein reign. I’ve shut the door on yesterday And thrown the key away- Tomorrow holds no doubt for me, Since I have found today.

In 1997 Agnes Martin received the Golden Lion for her achievement as an artist, one of the highest honors awarded by the Venice Biennale. Tribute was paid to the work of an artist who evades categorization: Even though Agnes Martin was linked to Minimal Art due to her focus on given structures, her floating abstractions do not follow a geometrical set of rules. The lines and stripes that the artist draws by hand irregularly and gently structure the white or delicately toned strips of color. This publication presents for the first time new works by the American artist, which were created after her extensive retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1993. Its spacious design is in accordance with the still, contemplative works, which are featured in color throughout the entire book. The text contributions contained in the publication--an essay by Ned Rifkin, director of the Menil Collection in Houston, and a poem by the American poet Edward Hirsch--acknowledge Agnes Martin's important position in 20th century art.
