Agnes Martin

Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher

The first and only complete career retrospective of the visionary painter andAbstract Expressionist heir, Agnes Martin (1912–2004)
In 1960 Arne Glimcher founded The Pace Gallery in Boston, and in 1963 moved the gallery to New York, becoming one of the world's most influential art dealers. He has worked with many major artists during his career, including Pablo Picasso, Ad Reinhardt, Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as Agnes Martin. Glimcher managed the exhibitions and sales of Martin's work through most of her career and became one of her closest friends. He also produced and directed several films, including The Mambo Kings (1992) and Just Cause (1995), and he continues to serve as Chairman of The Pace Gallery.
[a] stunningly beautiful volume ... an affectionate biographical glimpse into Martin's life ... Tucked alongside reproductions of paintings are previously unpublished lecture scripts, samples of Martin's letters to Glimcher, and other notes ... These actual-size replicas [...] are written neatly in the artist's own script, and offer intimate glimpses into her thought process ... The photographs of Martin in her rustic surroundings are marvelous and strange, and the lurid colours unique to old Polaroids provide a bracing contrast the restraint found in her paintings. ... Martin's works, with their delicate grids, can become muted or muffled on the page, but in this book they sing out pure and strong. In his acknowledgements, the author gives thanks to Sue Medlicott, a print-production specialist who helped assure faithful images reproductions. I want to echo and amplify that gratitude: While this is a book that above all honors Martin's achievements, it is also wholly indebted to Medlicott's talen. Between Medlicott's skill at making subtle colors legible and Glimcher's ability to evoke the artist's personality, Agnes Martin is both spare and extravagant: an apt tribute.' BookForum, USA

Einfach beeindruckend
von Peter Walder - Gottsbacher aus Innsbruck am 19.01.2013

Ein sehr schön gemachtes Buch von Phaidon, das einige Zeit auf sich hat warten lassen über eine wirklich beeindruckende, einfache und großartige Künstlerin, die bei uns scheinbar noch nicht so ganz im Bewußtsein verankert ist. Prädikat: Sehr empfehlensert.
