On view until October 11, Tate Modern presents a retrospective on Agnes Martin, the first since the artist's death in 2004.

Martin, an American painter born in 1912, is best known for her large-scale square grids and striped canvases. A diagnosed schizophrenic, she was famously evasive and disliked talking about her paintings and methods.

The show starts in London and will then travel to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
