Joan Mitchell's works blend continuity and rupture with the use of two to five large canvases, creating expansive, emotionally-charged compositions that reference landscapes and evoke individual places and memories. Mitchell's inventive re-imagining of the figure-ground relationship and her synesthetic use of color set her apart as one of the great achievements of the postwar period. This book offers a comprehensive view of Mitchell's range of scale and formal experimentation, including reproductions of each work, as well as details of surface texture and brushwork. Accompanying essays delve into the boundaries, borders, and edges in Mitchell's multifaceted paintings.
