Agnes Martin: The New York–Taos Connection (1947–1957), on view January 26–May 12, reexamines some of the influential painter’s earliest representational and abstract work: landscapes and seascapes, portraits and biomorphic configurations, precursors of the delicate grid paintings for which she is best known. Offering a glimpse into Martin’s creative process as it unfolds over the course of a decade, the works are the backstory to a sensibility aspiring to purity and innocence through the most minimal of means.
