agnes martin: paintings, writings, remembrances
Men's Size Chart
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.’ This book brings together 130 of Martin’s paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art.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 to the book. 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.
