    About The Work

    This poignant, desirable limited edition Agnes Martin print on Dalton natural bond paper, stamp signed and titled in gold, comes from the long sold out 1976–1977 portfolio sold exclusively by the Museum of Modern Art, the portfolio included prints by 13 important artists. "PRAISE" is an example of Agnes Martin's lifelong fascination with grid-based compositions, which grew from her interest in Taoism. The image is comprised of a light pink square overlaid with a series of darker pink lines, which break the square into columns of alternating widths. The saccharine pink here is a departure from her typically subdued compositions, which are rarely feature color aside from light washes of muted hues. Martin's use of color here comes after the artist's ten-year respite in the Southwest. This gorgeous pastel-pink lithograph is truly special as it's one of the only prints she did in color. Despite her close association with the Minimalists, Martin described her work as Abstract Expressionist in line with Rothko's formal logic, “perceptual perfection,” and sparse compositions. She became recognized for her delicate use of lines and sparing application of color.
