Agnes Martin: 'Untitled #14'; 1981; acrylic, gesso and pencil on canvas; 182.9 x 182.9 cmAfgelopen donderdag overleed op 92-jarige leeftijd Agnes Martin, een van 's werelds belangrijkste abstracte schilders en wat mij betreft een van de interessantste vrouwelijke kunstenaars van de vorige eeuw:

"Martin was fundamentally a loner. In 1967, when her New York career was taking off, she abruptly left the city, wandered the country for months in a pickup and camper, and stopped making art for seven years. She finally settled in New Mexico, building an adobe house with her own hands on a remote mesa where in winter she was snowed in for weeks at a time. After she resumed painting in 1974 her reputation grew and took on the aura of a legend. She became an inspiration to younger artists, from Eva Hesse to Ellen Gallagher, attracted to her undemonstrative but intensely personal art." (uit: International Herald Tribune)
