Joan Mitchell
February 12, 1925 – October 30, 1992

Mitchell was “an ecstatic and inventive colorist,” per John Russell in The New York Times, and a leading figure in abstract expressionism.

Even after Mitchell moved to France in 1939, she maintained her studio at 60 St. Mark’s Place for the next 30 years.
