Joan Mitchell. Colored worlds

National Gallery of Australia hosts an exhibition Joan Mitchell. Colored worlds ".

The exhibition features works on paper created by the American artist and printmaker Joan Mitchell at the final stage of her career.

Mitchell was born in Chicago and became a leading figure in the New York School of Abstract Expressionism in the early 1950s. The artist spent most of her life in France, settling in 1968 in Vétheuil, near Paris, and remained devoted to Abstract Expressionism throughout her career. Works taken from the Kenneth Tyler collection showcase Mitchell's exploration of color, shape and space and explore how these elements contributed to her creativity. Inspired by the natural world, Mitchell uses flowers, trees, water and sky.
