Today is Agnes Martin’s birthday. Celebrate by coming to see Agnes Martin: The New York–Taos Connection (1947–1957) this afternoon or weekend.
Martin was one of the few women to stand out during a revolutionary period of American art in the 1940s and 1950s. Her meditative paintings, drawings, and writings have influenced generations of artists interested in abstraction.
