Agnes Martin

Agnes Martin (b. 1912, Maklin, Saskatchewan, Canada; d. 2004 Taos, New Mexico) studied at Western Washington College of Education, Bellingham, WA, prior to receiving her B.S. (1942) from Teachers College, Columbia University. A few years following graduation, Martin matriculated at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, where she also taught art courses before returning to Columbia University to earn her M.A. (1952). Since her first solo exhibition in 1958 Martin's work has been the subject of more than 80 solo shows and two retrospectives including "Agnes Martin: Paintings and Drawings 1974-1990" organized by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, with subsequent venues in France and Germany (1991-92), and the survey "Agnes Martin" organized by Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, that later traveled to Milwaukee, Miami, Houston and Madrid (1992-94).
