Joan Mitchell
1990
Color lithograph
Edition 49/60
40.0060.00
Price: $9,100 USD

Joan Mitchell (American, 1925-1992) Mastering a signature style of Action Painting (akin to Jackson Pollock’s work) informed by a deep interest into the post-impressionist paintings of Van Gogh and others, Joan Mitchell became one of the driving forces behind a second generation of Abstract Expressionism. Undermining the notion of Action Painting’s violent and rage-induced mark as something inherently masculine, Mitchell has said “I think women are inclined more than men to be self-destructive, and I really think I had the masochistic medal there for a while.” Mitchell’s expressive works were based equally on the lasting impressions of the environments around her, (the city of New York, or the French countryside where she would settle, among others) and her own, often troubled psyche at the time of painting. The results make up an important part of the historical canon of abstract expressionism, marking the expansion of the movement into new compositional frontiers and vivid experimental palettes.
