Joan Mitchell: Painting as Cathedral

Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University

Joan Mitchell (1925–1992) came of age as an artist in the 1950s New York of the Cedar Tavern and the Artists' Club. The physicality of her mark making--her commitment to abstraction, and her love of oil paint itself, not to mention her toughness--identify Mitchell as a New York School artist. While she continued down the path laid out by Abstract Expressionism, her work kept evolving and was, in the end, unclassifiable.
