Phaidon’s re-released Agnes Martin monograph paints a full picture of the visionary artist’s storied career

Over seven decades, Agnes Martin solidified her reputation as a pioneer of minimalism and abstract painting with iconic artworks that continue to inspire. Phaidon’s highly coveted Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances, the first and only career retrospective of the American artist, has returned to the marketplace featuring a beautifully updated new binding. Originally published in 2012, the book highlights more than 130 of Martin’s most popular works, which are revered for their magnificent visual poetry. Pace Gallery founder Arne Glimcher, who was a longtime friend and dealer of Martin’s, reveals personal anecdotes, insights and years of correspondence with the painter in the tome. Fans and art enthusiasts alike will discover paintings, drawings and prints, as well as facsimiles of the artist’s handwritten notes and letters.
