Gorgeously quiet in color and composition, Agnes Martin's paintings have a distinctive grace that sets them apart from those of the Abstract Expressionists of her day and the Minimalist artists she inspired. Martin attributed her grid-based works to metaphysical motivations, lending a serene complexity to her oeuvre that has defied any easy categorization. Perhaps for this reason, critical and scholarly analysis of her paintings has been scarce-until now. This important new anthology brings together the most current scholarship on Martin's paintings by Rhea Anastas, Lynne Cooke, Douglas Crimp, Suzanne Hudson, Jonathan D. Katz, Zoe Leonard, Jaleh Mansoor, Michael Newman, Christina Bryan Rosenberger, and Anne M. Wagner essayists considering various aspects of the artist's four-decade career.

Organized by Dia Art Foundation, whose extensive holdings of Martin's paintings and ambitions to support in-depth research on the works are unparalleled, the publication brings renewed focus and energy to Martin's career and her contributions to the art historical narrative.

Thirty years after his untimely death, Robert Smithson (1938-1973) remains one of the most influential artists of his generation. His complex ideas took root in many forms, including drawings, projects, proposals, sculpture, earthworks, films, and critical writings. Although made in a brief span from the mid-sixties to the early seventies, Smithson's provocative works redefined the language of sculpture.
