Joan Mitchell: The Last Paintings - Hauser & Wirth

Joan Mitchell, Untitled, 1992
Abstract Expressionist Joan Mitchell died in 1992; Hauser & Wirth are showing an exhibition of exuberant work made in the last decade of her life. Born in Chicago in 1925, Mitchell moved to New York in 1950 where she exhibited alongside Willem De Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline; in 1959 she moved to France where she remained for the rest of her life. Her late work displays her admiration for Van Gogh and Monet. The exhibition continues until 28 April.
