Product story

This book has been selected and reviewed by Michael Prodger for the RA Magazine: Issue 131 Summer 2016.

Donald Woodman met Agnes Martin – recluse and painter of delicate grids that formed a lovely show at Tate Modern last year – in New Mexico in the 1970s and became her assistant. The portrait he paints is not of an artist of contemplative calm, as her pictures suggest, but a rebarbative, domineering and self-centred character. Woodman overlooked these traits (despite his own suicide attempt) because he recognised they made her the painter she was.
