Joan Mitchell: World’s of Colour

Exhibition and Shows

22 Apr 2021 to 26 Apr 2021 Once Only Event

This exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia presents works on paper produced by the American painter and printmaker Joan Mitchell during the final stage of her career.

Born in Chicago, Mitchell emerged in the early 1950s as a leading figure in the New York School of Abstract Expressionism. The artist spent much of her life in France, settling permanently in Vétheuil, near Paris, in 1968, and remained dedicated to Abstract Expressionism throughout her career.

Drawn from the Kenneth Tyler Collection, the prints on display highlight Mitchell’s exploration of colour, shape and space, and consider how these elements contributed to her art. Inspired by the natural world, Mitchell’s work references flowers, trees, water and sky.
