Agnes Martin

"Inspiration and life are equivalents and they come from outside
Beauty is pervasive
inspiration is pervasive
We say this rose is beautiful
and when this rose is destroyed then we have lost something
so that beauty has been lost
When the rose is destroyed we grieve
but really beauty is unattached
and a clear mind sees it"

So wrote Agnes Martin in her 1972 text, "The Untroubled Mind," excerpted here from the unparalleled survey copublished this year by D.A.P. and Tate Modern and one of our top Holiday Gift Books for Art Connoisseurs. Featured image is Untitled (1959).
