Joan Mitchell is recognized as a principal figure—and one of the few female artists—in the second generation of American Abstract Expressionists. By the early 1950s, she was regarded as a leading artist in the New York School. In her early years as a painter, she was influenced by Paul Cézanne, Wassily Kandinsky, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and later by the work of Franz Kline and Willem de Kooning, Jean-Paul Riopelle, among others.
Bring your ideas, opinions, and questions to this workshop with brilliant and irreverent art historian Suzanne Walker. We’ll talk about Mitchell’s relationship to Abstract Expressionism, and her navigation across the canvas and her career.
This is the second of our WTF Art History series. All are welcome.
