Joan Mitchell: Lady Painter

I am still editing all my photos from High Point but decided to take a break today.  While catching up on my favorite websites, I was excited to read on Vogue.com that there is a book about to be released about my favorite artist Joan Mitchell. While I absolutely love Joan Mitchell's abstract paintings, I just realized that I don't know much about her life. Joan Mitchell: Lady Painter by Patricia Albers won't be out until May 3rd so I'll have to wait until then to read it...unless Knopf wants to send me an advance copy as a birthday present.  I have no shame when it comes to a subject I love!  Bon Weekend!

Yes, her abstract works are stunning. I love the naivistic approach she takes to it and many of her creations remind me of Jackson Pollock's works.

Here's an article you might enjoy, until you get the book.

Heather-You really have some great posts that educate! I feel like I broaden my horizons reading your blog---Joan Mitchell sounds like such an interesting person to read about and images of her art are beautiful.. I wonder if the author of the book is any relation to Josef and Anni Albers?
Thanks to Charlotte for further info--I'll read that too!
