Agnes MArtin is not an artist I was really familiar and having learnt a little of her life she does seem something of an enigma,
Martin, a Canadian had been at the heart of Modern New York art but withdrew from art for a lengthy period on time and settled in New Mexico where she lived to the age of 92.

Many of the works on show fit into what might be broadly be described as minimal - another rather great fact ( hope it's true) is that Agnes did not look at a paper for 50 years.
