by Henry Martin
Pairing academic rigor with an accessible writing style, the biography is informed by new discoveries as well as never-before-published interviews with the artist’s family and closest friends. The narrative arc encompasses a range of themes, locales, and characters, including Georgia O’Keefe, schizophrenia, 1960s New York art culture, and feminist and LGBT culture. A bold and readable exploration of an exceptional individual, totally unique as an artist, and a major influence on women artists in particular. Agnes was impossible, tormented, afflicted, and mesmerizing, forming and forging her own narrative voice while battling the voices in her head.
