1925 - 1992
Joan Mitchell is known for the compositional rhythms, bold coloration, and sweeping gestural brushstrokes of her large and often multi-paneled paintings.
Inspired by landscape, nature, and poetry, her intent was not to create a recognizable image, but to convey emotions. Mitchell’s early success in the 1950s was striking at a time when few women artists were recognized.
She referred to herself as the « last Abstract Expressionist, » and she continued to create abstract paintings until her death in 1992.
