The research for the catalogue raisonné, by bringing together information about Agnes Martins complete body of work, has made it possible to better understand the development of her early work as well as some of the stylistic shifts and thematic changes throughout her career. This presentation will briefly describe the research for the catalogue raisonné and give some examples of observations it has made available, concentrating particularly on those that influenced the curatorial decisions made in organizing the retrospective exhibition currently on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

This event is co-sponsored by the History of Art and Design department, the Fine Arts department, and the School of Art.
