Princenthal spends more time than I can manage on describing her art work. This is definitely an academic take on Agnes Martin's life. I am currently reading Henry Martin's book about Agnes. Agnes had stretches of silence and many relationships both romantic and platonic throughout her life.

I am reading a biography about Agnes Martin, the american artist, who spent so many years in or close to Taos. I started reading it, shortly before I departed for New Mexico last August. That said, it is obviously, that it takes me an awful long time, to finish the book.
So, this morning, I started to wonder, why that was the case, and the first answer was: this book is demanding. You can not just read it. It often reads like a scientists paper in art history.
The Life and Art of Paul Klee
Many informations on places, she li I am reading a biography about Agnes Martin, the american artist, who spent so many years in or close to Taos. Many informations on places, she lived, the artists and circles, whom one could encounter there, pages and pages of descripitions of her paintings, which I would rather expect from a catalogue of a workshow, not from a biography.
The book is often filled with knowledge, which did not help me personally, to understand Agnes Martin.
Fact is: she grew more and more distant. Constructions considering her mental illness schicophrenia , which probably are researched impeccably, but still, the artist remained distant, like somebody without feelings. It all read like theory. No life in this.
Maybe, this has to do with her shyness. She did'nt leave much for biographers to search through.

Feb 01, Bill Syken rated it liked it. Martin is a fascinating character—I love her line, "I have no friends, and you're one of them. I also think Nancy Princenthal is a fine biograper, but the secretive and obscure Martin often didn't leave her much to work with, and so the book has long sections in which Martin all but disappears and the biographer is left to general descriptions about the worlds in which Martin was moving or the currents of art. After a point I found myself skimming these s Martin is a fascinating character—I love her line, "I have no friends, and you're one of them.
After a point I found myself skimming these sections and moving to the parts where Martin returns. Nov 10, Brian rated it really liked it. Nov 13, Luci rated it it was ok. Interesting disussions about theory, art criticism and from that perspective, not badly written Perhaps some biographies should not be written. Best to read her writings and view her paintings Nov 22, Pat rated it it was ok. A good source for a scholar studying this fascinatingly eccentric painter whose work mesmerizes me.
However, it is a hard read with all its detail, and I still don't feel I understand what drove her to adopt her iconic style. Jun 18, Mary rated it liked it Shelves: art-drama-read. Interesting read. Learned a lot.
