Agnes Martin (American, 1912-2004)
Paintings and Drawings : Stedelijk Museum Portfolio, 1991; 10 lithographs on vellum parchment paper; From an edition of 2500; 11 7/8" x 11 3/4" (sheet, each); Publisher: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Provenance: Private Collection, Ohio;
Sale Price: $10,000
Publisher: Nemela & Lenzen GmbH, Monchengladback & Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Printer: Lecturis, Eindhoven.
Note: The measurements of 12 square inches are for each of the ten (10) lithographs in the suite.
This is the complete suite of ten limited edition separate, exquisite Agnes Martin lithographs on vellum parchment paper, published in 1990 and sold 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. The suite of ten loose prints are housed in an elegant folding chemise. The lithographs are loose, not bound, so they can be framed individually and exhibited separately or as a suite. Each lithograph measures 12 square inches. The 10 lithographs are based upon Agnes Martin's paintings that were exhibited at the artist's Stedelijk Museum retrospective in 1990. Martin has said she believed music to be the highest art form, so it is not accidental that these poignant compositions are done on translucent vellum, similar to musical parchment. Known for her evocative works marked out in subtle pencil lines and pale color washes, Agnes Martin’s restrained style was underpinned by her conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art.

About Agnes Martin

Agnes Martin built her oeuvre around the search for sublime beauty and serenity, following her belief that “art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” Her fine-lined grids, bands, and square blocks of pale, lightly applied color fused the emotional resonance of Abstract Expressionism with the spare purity of Minimalism. Martin’s mastery of line and grid was a great source of inspiration to artists like Eva Hesse and Ellen Gallagher, and her work is often discussed alongside Sol LeWitt’s famed wall drawings. The square is integral to Martin’s work, both as the shape of her canvases and as an enduring motif, influenced by the Taoist pursuit of balance and harmony. “My paintings are not about what is seen,” she said. “They are about what is known forever in the mind.”
