Joan Mitchell

New York Art World ® - Commentary Index - Artists Listings - Themes

Joan Mitchell created expansive paintings with an energetic style distinguished by large gestural strokes, driving brushwork, and emotional intensity.

She is perhaps best known for her ability to communicate the visual sentiments of nature -- or, in her own words, "to convey the feeling of the dying sunflower." La Grande Vallee 0 (1983) is one of 21 opulent French landscapes.

1925 - 1992
