I bought this on a lark when my local store had a deep discount night. Wow, I was NOT disappointed! Agnes Martin is quite an enigma to me (I'm a professional painter), but I am intrigued with her work. I find that the artists whose works intrigue me, nag at me, are the most important to my work (even when I, at first, don't "like" their works). So good writing about Martin is something I keep an eye out for. I have read the "standards," even the newer 3X Abstraction. But two essays stand out in this book: one by Jonathan Katz, and one by Michael Newman. They were so informative about Martin and how to approach the works from her life and from a philosophical/phenomenological view that I am tempted to go back and re-read the essays that came before. I just wrote to my local art school's librarian to recommend purchasing this for their library (something I have only done once before).

Although there are 28 full-color plates (some of the best reproductions I have ever seen--Martin's work is devilishly hard to depict in print), it's helpful to have access to another Martin resource if you're not familiar with her work. In addition there are photos and diagrams.

I have yellow stickies all over the place in this book and expect it to be important as I write my dissertation.

Is anyone else disappointed with this volume? I think the essays are solid and informative, but I was hoping the images would take center stage. Agnes Martin's works are too seldom seen, so I wanted her paintings LARGE on the page, to really see those details of her painstaking process, the texture and tactility. I'm sure they are difficult to reproduce well, but still. Most are a mere 4 or 5 inches square. Don't get me wrong, the book contains many 4c images, but they are painfully little and hard to appreciate fully. I love the book, just wish it had fulfilled my desire for lush reproductions too.

Extraordinarily written, of all of the Martin retrospectives, this set of work, most notably Lynne Cooke, Zoe Leonard and Christina Bryan Rosenberger, show us what makes Martin such a sought after artist. Well worth the buy.
