Long-Awaited Joan Mitchell Retrospective Opens

Joan Mitchell was one of the very few women who made it into 'The Club'—the exclusive (male-dominated) gathering of artists who were to become the forerunners of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism.⁠⁠

Revered for her ability to unify physical experience with the emotions of the inner self through her fearlessly expressive works, she has now been honoured with a ground-breaking (and long-awaited) retrospective of over 80 works at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. ⁠⁠

Demand for her extraordinary paintings has skyrocketed. Most recently, her three-metre-tall 1962 painting 12 Hawks at 3 O'Clock, which stole the show at this year's Art Basel in Hong Kong, sold for $20M, as covered in Ocula News.

The exhibition will travel to Baltimore Museum of Art on 6 March 2022.
