About Agnes Martin

Though closely associated with the Minimalist movement, Agnes Martin (Canadian, 1912-2004) rejected the connotation, instead calling herself an Abstract Expressionist. Her earlier work experimented with self-portraiture and watercolor while her later drawings channeled the formalism of Mark Rothko, emphasizing “perceptual perfection” on a reduced canvas. She is best known for her grids of thinly marked pencil lines, which have been praised for their emotive reticence and seemingly rational abstraction. She was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 1997 and the National Medal of Arts in 1998, among others, and her works reside in the Guggenheim and MoMA, as well as other institutions around the world.
