Críticas:

Writing a biography of Agnes Martin (1912 2004) is a study in frustration, but former Art in America senior editor Princenthal manages to piece together a story while getting beyond her subject s well-guarded privacy. . . . The author s deep research and personal correspondence with the artist will be enlightening to fans of Martin and will encourage others to seek out the work. " Princenthal s style is underplayed she, like her subject, never lends herself to theatricality. Also like Martin, Princenthal does a lot with very little. She smoothly transitions between art and life, lyricism and scholarship. . . . Martin is most famous for her minimal paintings, but Princenthal homes in on the lesser-known pockets of her career as well. Princenthal s book is thoughtful enough to feel personal...her words are in service of Martin s work and spirit." Doggedly researched and gracefully written. . . . [Princenthal] shines in describing Martin's earthy good humor and dedication to her art and in capturing the atmosphere in which the artist came of age. It's the best life we have of this remarkable woman, and it will remain definitive for a long good while. Prompts us to appreciate the world around us in a new way, no longer seeing clothing as a practical necessity, but as a statement of beauty and technical perfection. Presents the artist as a woman in full. . . The first full-length biography of Agnes Martin reveals a driven, conflicted artist. . . . Princenthal has done a heroic service in scouting the glut of sources--reviews, documentaries, interviews, previous publications--for the brightest quotations and strangest anomalies. She strings these together into an engaging narrative. . . . [Her] tone is assured and reassuring. . . . Princenthal's book offers the frankest discussion to date of the artist's diagnosis [of schizophrenia]. It examines the shifting perception and treatment of mental illness in the US during Martin's lifetime, and also the rarity of her condition. Writing a biography of Agnes Martin is a study in frustration, but Princenthal manages to piece together a story while getting beyond her subject's well-guarded privacy. [She] carefully describes the artist's works, but there is no way to appreciate [Martin] without seeing the originals. The author's deep research and personal correspondence with the artist will be enlightening to fans of Martin and will encourage others to seek out her work. In the first comprehensive Martin biography, art critic Princenthal combines facts with astute critical analysis to create a richly inquisitive, vividly written portrait in sync with Martin's rigorous yet magnificently nuanced grid and stripe paintings. . . . Princenthal sensitively brings Martin forward as a strong, independent, courageous, thorny, self-mythologizing, funny, private, and generous artist of conviction and vision, who lived simply, attained wealth and fame, and experienced, at times, an 'ecstatic radiance' that will forever animate her paintings. Princenthal's style is underplayed--she, like her subject, never lends herself to theatricality. Also like Martin, Princenthal does a lot with very little. She smoothly transitions between art and life, lyricism and scholarship. . . . Martin is most famous for her minimal paintings, but Princenthal homes in on the lesser-known pockets of her career as well. Princenthal's book is thoughtful enough to feel personal...her words are in service of Martin's work and spirit.

Reseña del editor:

Over the course of a career that spanned fifty years, Agnes Martin's austere, serene work anticipated and helped to define Minimalism, even as she battled psychological crises and carved out a solitary existence in the American Southwest. 'I paint with my back to the world', she claimed; when she died at ninety-two, in Taos, New Mexico, it is said she had not read a newspaper in half a century. Nancy Princenthal tells her whole story chronologically - from Martin's birth in Saskatchewan and her early years as an artist, living in derelict Manhattan shipping lofts as neighbour to Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly and others of their ilk; to the seven years she stopped painting, just as her career was taking off; the months she spent roaming the country in a pick-up truck; and her last thirty years, in Taos, in an adobe house she built with her own hands. Nancy Princenthal has written the essential Agnes Martin biography; a must-read for anyone interested in abstract painting or the history of women artists in America.
