DESCRIPTION

The meditative paintings, drawings, and writings of Agnes Martin (American, born Canada, 1912–2004) have influenced generations of artists interested in abstraction. Although she began making art in New York in the early 1940s while studying at Columbia University, she chose to live and work in the Taos, New Mexico, area for much of her life. This exhibition features rarely seen paintings and drawings created by Martin in Taos from 1947, the year of her first exhibition, to 1957, the year she returned to New York, where she would continue to hone her ideas about abstraction as a working method.
