Agnes Martin passes away

One of my favorite contemporary painters, Canadian-born Agnes Martin, just died at the age of 92.  Her soft colors and straight lines did much to bring beauty back into art.  She was no minimalist but most of all a believer in spirituality and the pure aesthetic.  Here is the story.  She lived a secluded life and had expressed a desire for no obituaries, but here is one nice painting by her.  Here is a nice print.
