This manuscript, first published in the Agnes Martin Catalogue Raisonné in 2017, is likely the earliest examples of Martin’s writing and date to circa early 1950s based on their provenance. Martin was a prolific writer and reader; her words provide a window into the artist's mind, add a dimension to her paintings, and expand the understanding of her work.
