Agnes Martin: Life and Work


Destroyed artworks

Martin was ruthless in destroying artwork that she considered immature, which for her included anything made prior to the late 1950s.

—Nancy Princenthal on the book Agnes Martin: Her Life and Art

Martin's attitude toward her early work is problematic. She destroyed most of it, and one feels that she would gladly make a bonfire of the rest if she could get her hands on it.

- Benita Eisler on The New Yorker
