Lot Essay

"When I first made a grid I happened to be thinking of the innocence of trees and then this grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence, and I still do, and so I painted it and then I was satisfied. I thought, this is my vision"
(A. Martin quoted in S. Campbell, "Interview with Agnes Martin," Archives of American Art, 15 May 1989).
