Agnes Martin, Untitled, 1975.


In 1974, after a hiatus of some six years and a retrospective of her work covering the decade 1957-67, Agnes Martin resumed painting. The works of the later seventies explore unprecedented avenues within her abiding aesthetic, culminating in 1979 in a suite of twelve subtly interrelated paintings, The Islands. This is the latest phase in Dia’s multi-part retrospective of Martin’s work.
