Joan Mitchell (American)
Born 1925, in Chicago, IL — Died 1992, in Paris, France
Joan Mitchell was a bold and inventive painter, and preeminent member of the second generation of Abstract Expressionists. Mitchell painted striking, animated compositions, but remained somewhat separated from other Abstract Expressionist painters. Mitchell maintained that much of her work was inspired by her reactions to landscapes, rather than by internal emotion and the subconscious, often cited as a driving force behind the work of most Abstract Expressionists.
Joan Mitchell had several retrospectives during her lifetime, at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and at the Musée de l’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, as well as many others around the world. Her works are in most internationally prestigious art museum collections.
