Agnes Martin (Canadian, 1912-2004) was a Canadian artist. Though closely associated with the Minimalist movement, Martin rejected the term, calling herself an Abstract Expressionist. Previously experimenting with self-portraits and watercolors, her new works adhered to the formal logic of Mark Rothko, which emphasized the “perceptual perfection” of a reduced canvas. The artist is known for her thinly marked pencil lines and bands of color and her transcendent prints have been praised for their emotive reticence and conscientious, seemingly rational, abstraction.
