The Macklowe Collection: Lisa Dennison on Martin's Untitled #11, 1985

In this video, join Sotheby's Lisa Dennison in an exploration of Agnes Martin's Untitled #11, to be offered as a highlight of The Macklowe Collection May 2022. A profoundly peaceful work of art, Agnes Martin’s Untitled #11 from 1985 magnificently captures the sublime expressiveness within minimal means that is a hallmark of the artist’s oeuvre and which stands as her most influential contribution to the twentieth century discourse on the value of painting. Martin’s art reflects a prolonged and deeply considered investigation into the nature of abstraction and the role of the artist, masterfully articulating an intellectual balancing act between the subtle poetry of delicate mark-making and the muscular prose of modernist geometry.
