‘Agnes of the Desert’ Joins Modernism’s Pantheon – The New York Times

Agnes Pelton’s “Orbits” (1934), at the Whitney Museum of American Art, shows the artist’s arsenal of stars on lariats, vessel shapes and a horizon — a sense of Disney-like animation, and wit.Credit…Oakland Museum of California


Came across Agnes three years ago and wrote this about her:

Let’s Hear it for the Girls: Agnes Pelton

Am thrilled to see an exhibition at the Whitney in New York is currently showing her work (although closed at the moment). Great review of her work from the New York Times.
