c-11Joan Mitchell (1926-1992) was one of the few women artists accepted among the Abstract Expressionists. She expanded upon the visual language of New York artists including her mentor Willem de Kooning. She outpaced all but a handful of her male mentors and counterparts. Although well regarded by critics, fellow artists, and the general public, Mitchell’s achievement has never received full recognition. In 1955, Mitchell moved to France to join Canadian painter Jean-Paul Riopelle, where she continued to paint until her death in 1992. John Ashbery called her ” …a tough lady, a hard drinker, hard on her friends and harder on herself”.

Description: Hard bound with dust jacket. Yellow cloth with blue titles.  14 color plates. Essay by John Ashbery. Exhibition catalog containing the artist’s last works before her death at the age of 66. Some minor bowing to boards, otherwise very good. Interior clean and binding tight.
