Agnes Martin: Paintings and Drawings 1977–1991

Serpentine South Gallery 8 Sep — 24 Oct 1993 Free

This exhibition offered the public a unique opportunity to see the work of abstract artist Agnes Martin.

This was the first time since 1977 that Martin’s work had been seen in a public space in Britain. Her work at the Serpentine Gallery represented some of the artist’s preoccupations over 14 years. These recent works conveyed a tranquil happiness – an ecstatic reflection of reality which, for Martin, is an essential subject matter of art.
