To collect information for the catalogue raisonné and an upcoming retrospective of the work of Agnes Martin, Tiffany Bell, Editor, Agnes Martin Catalogue Raisonné, recently made a trip to Texas and New Mexico. Martin spent several formative years in New Mexico and returned to make it her home for the last three decades of her life.

The visit was filled by meetings with friends of the artist who have added details to the chronology of her life such as an account of a boat and camping trip up the Mackenzie River in northwest Canada; with collectors who have stories and information about works from Martin’s earliest period as an artist; and by a visit to the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, which hosts a permanent installation of the artist’s paintings and a growing archive of photos and documents about her work.
