On offer is the complete limited edition portfolio of 10 exquisite Agnes Martin lithographs on thin vellum parchment paper, originally published on the occasion of the artist’s 1991 retrospective at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. These lithographs, distinguished by their square format and reduced lines, transcribe pure and minimal expression. They are accompanied by an illustrated monograph, bound in stiff wraps, with text in English, Dutch, German and French. The catalogue features 16 color and 55 black and white illustrations. The suite of ten loose prints are housed in an elegant folding chemise and laid-in the slipcase. This portfolio is also accompanied by a rare supplement bound with red string, to celebrate Agnes Martin winning the Alexej von Jawlensky Prize, 1990.

The 10 vellum prints are based upon Agnes Martin’s paintings that were exhibited at the artist’s Stedelijk Museum retrospective in 1990

The Artist

Agnes Martin

Abstract painter Agnes Martin had two major influences in her work: the landscapes of the New Mexico desert and the teachings of Taoism. After attending Summer Field School in New Mexico in 1947, Martin left and returned to its empty landscapes throughout her life, living there until her death in 2004, aged 92. She was first introduced to Taoism while studying at Columbia University in New York City in the early 1940s and was fascinated by it as a code of ethics and a guide to living. Both these inspirations show in her paintings: her early works reflected the desert landscape she was surrounded by. As her worked evolved, she incorporated pastel washes that brought a light, shimmering effect to her canvas, an expression of her spiritual development. This transformed again with her ‘Untitled No.4’ in 1994, where she brought in bright, bold colour washes mixed with gesso.
