Oil on canvas, featuring abstract theme artwork. Signed and attr. Joan Mitchell (American, 1925-1992), on lower left margin. Removed from frame. 16.5 x 14 in. (41.9 x 35.6 cm). In 1950s New York, Joan Mitchell was a lively, argumentative member of the famed Cedar Bar crowd, alongside Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, and other notable first- and second-generation Abstract Expressionist painters. Based on landscape imagery and flowers, her large-scale paintings investigate the potential of big, aggressive brushstrokes and vivid color to convey emotion. "I try to eliminate cliches, extraneous material," she once said. PROVENANCE: Private Collection (Toronto, ON)
