Agnes Martin, Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher is a beautiful collection of the artist's most important art works, illuminated by her own notes and writings. Martin's writings are fascinatingly direct in explaining her philosophies on art and on the themes of life that inspire her paintings and drawings, and facsimilies presenting her words in her own handwriting intimately convey her thoughts. More than 150 of Martin's paintings present the full extent of her artistic career, and her own words explain how they were inspired by ideas on love, joy, beauty, humility, solitude, perfection, 'freedom from the cares of this world', destiny and the nature of existence. The artist's works and writings are here introduced by art dealer and film director, Arne Glimcher, who represented the artist for most of her career and was good friend. He opens the book with reminiscences of working with Martin and how her art developed during her life, and later in the book are notes on visits he made to Martin's studio and home in New Mexico. With beautifully accurate reproductions of Martin's works, and foldouts to show her series as groups, as well as the comprehensive presentation of works and writings, this luxurious book is unprecedented: a uniquely full and intimate celebration of the artist.

Exhibition catalogue features over 30 rarely shown paintings by Albers, many of which have not been seen since the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's 1988 centennial retrospective dating from the 1940s through the 1970s. Often understood as being academic and disciplinarian in method and approach, Homage to Color reevaluates Albers' vision and positions him as an artist largely interested in exploring the mystical, spiritual, and the sublime. The work on view highlights Albers' pivotal role in mid-century American art and as a creative pillar within the history of Abstraction.
