Description: This is the most complete study of the life and work of Joan Mitchell (1926-1992), one of the major artists of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Winning a place for herself in the New York art world of the 1950s, Mitchell achieved recognition for her grand yet personal style of painting. But her work is not as widely appreciated in the United States as it deserves to be, in part because she lived in France during the later decades of her life.

In her will, Mitchell directed that a longtime friend, the critic and curator Klaus Kertess, write the text for this book. Kertess provides a richly textured account of Mitchell's career, tracing her evolution from her earliest efforts as a young artist in Chicago and her arrival in New York in the 1940s. He gives special attention to the array of gifted painters and poets in the legendary New York art scene of the 1950s, when Mitchell first made her mark, and discusses at length Mitchell's friendships with artists such as Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline and writers such as Franck O'Hara.
