A leading figure of the second generation of Abstract Expressionists in New York City, Joan Mitchell said that although her paintings seemed total abstractions, they were, in fact, "about a feeling that comes to me from the outside, the landscape." She distinguished herself from other Abstract Expressionists because she had a pre-established design, a single image, to anchor her painting rather than leaving the result to subconscious, totally emotion-based expression.

          Joan Mitchell, American (1925-1992), Champs (Carnegie Hall Centennial Fine Art Portfolio), color lithograph, ed. 24/60

          Est: $6,000 - $8,000

          Joan Mitchell American, (1925-1992) Champs (Carnegie Hall Centennial Fine Art Portfolio) color lithograph, ed. 24/60 Joan Mitchell was born in Chicago (1925) and attended SAIC (the School of the Art Institute of Chicago). From there she studied abroad in France, an experience that changed her life. After painting in New York for a few years, by 1959 she permanently relocated to France, taking up residence in Vétheuil. Her home there overlooked the former home of Claude Monet who, about 50 years earlier, had painted many scenes of this same place located northwest of Paris (Monet eventually moved a few km farther away to Giverny). Mitchell is categorised as having been part of the second generation of abstractionists, and despite being a female artist in what was a man's world, she was incredibly successful and prolific, eventually creating a body of over 550 works (paintings, prints, pastels on paper). But her abstractions, often designed in the form of diptychs or polyptychs, were not always fully abstract but instead firmly grounded in a love of nature often featuring sunflowers, fields, trees, gardens, landscapes, etc. So like Monet, Mitchell also lived in this same part of the world in solitude, intensely involved in a relationship with essence of the natural world. Unlike Monet though, Mitchell did not paint en plein air but worked inside a studio and apparently often at nighttime. In a nutshell, her philosophy is this: "I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me—and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would like more to paint what it leaves with me." The Saint Louis Art Museum owns works by both painters and featured them and many others in a large show that originated at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris in winter 2023 called "Monet/ Mitchell: Painting the French Landscape" (SLAM, March-June 2023). Her work is part of the collections of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Whitney in NYC, the Art Institute of Chicago, MOMA, and many others. More information on Mitchell can be found at her foundation's website: www.joanmitchellfoundation.org. This print, signed and numbered 24/60, is entitled "Champs" (‘fields' in English), made in the same year as four other paintings with the same exact name ("Champs") and alongside several others entitled Marge (Margins), Taillade (Slash), Sunflowers, and Rivière (River)—all from 1990. Here and elsewhere Mitchell boiled down her impression from nature into a work of synthesised feeling about what she experienced when outside. The pure and bright colors featured in this version of "Champs" evoke a late fall or early wintry landscape with a grey and white sky, red leaves changing color, dark blues and black from groundcover at rest, and a very small remaining hint of green. This print represents how Mitchell felt outside…how does it make you feel? Mitchell was one of 16 artists whose work had been chosen to be made into a series of 60 highly collectable color lithographs created for the Centennial Anniversary of Carnegie Hall in 1990. In this auction Link is featuring several prints (all numbered 24/60, as collected by the same individual) featuring works by 5 of the original group of 16: Joan Mitchell, Ed Ruscha, George Baselitz, Alex Katz and Larry Rivers. signed and numbered in pencil lower margin, framed.

          JOAN MITCHELL (AMERICAN 1925-1992) Landscape #150, circa 1949 oil on canvas 81 x 100 cm (31 7/8 x 39 3/8 in.) framed dimensions: 85 x 105 cm (33 1/2 x 41 3/8 in.) signed lower right PROVENANCE Gift from the artist to Tim Osato, Chicago, in the early 1950s Thence by descent Private Collection, until 1979 Sotheby's New York, March 15, 2006 lot 5 Private Collection, New York LOT NOTES A gift from the artist to her lover and friend Tim Osato, Landscape #150 is an early Joan Mitchell work that can be traced to Mitchell's 1950s experiments with Cubism and different ways of thinking about space that would lead her to forming her unique style and gaining a reputation as one of the most prominent abstract expressionist painters. Born in Chicago, Mitchell grew up taking classes at the Art Institute of Chicago (SIAC) where she got exposed to van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Cezanne and decided to be a painter. Later she received her BFA and MFA from SIAC as well, and graduated with a travel award scholarship to France. In 1948 Joan Mitchell moved to Paris to immerse herself in French Impressionist heritage that was so influential to her during her school years. Upon her return to New York in 1950s she continued to experiment with the complexity of space, injecting her works with senses and trying to work her way from abstracting reality to creating abstract imagery. Landscape #150 is one of such works. "She abstracted form, but stayed close to observe realities. She did not radically distort form or figures, nor did she portray them from multiple vantage points. Instead she stripped her figures and objects of specific features, paired them to physical and, increasingly, psychological essences, and sank them into webs of lines and planes, developing a complex spacial sensibility that would carry on the structure of her work for the rest of her life." (Robert Siegel, Joan Mitchell, (New Heaven: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, Yale University Press, 2021), p.24 Later Mitchell achieved remarkable success in her lifetime, exhibiting regularly in New York and Paris. Her works are in collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art, and other major institutions since the 1950s. Her works were the subject of a mid-career retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum in 1974. In 1982, Mitchell became the first female American artist to have a solo exhibition at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

          ‘Untitled’, chalk pastel on paper, vivid blue and red abstract imagery, pencil-signed lower right. Provenance: Andre Emmerich Gallery Inc, New York (see label on reverse). Condition: this chalk pastel on yellowed paper (deckle-edge) is unfixed. The upper right edge of the paper has a slight crease. Known for her highly emotive gestural abstraction, Joan Mitchell was one of the most prominent members of the second generation of Abstract Expressionists. Mitchell painted highly structured, large-scale compositions featuring vibrant, violent bursts of color and light, often influenced by landscape painting and informed by her emotional understanding of the world around her. Mitchell was one of the only female artists of her generation to achieve critical and public acclaim, and her work was featured in the famous Ninth Street Show of 1951, which introduced the world to the emerging American avant-garde. Mitchell was a devoted student of art as well as a talented painter, who worked in a variety of mediums including oil on canvas, pastel on paper, and lithographic printing. She developed an intimate understanding of color through her admiration of the work of Henri Matisse and Vincent van Gogh and created an art form completely her own, continuing her investigation of abstraction for the rest of her career. Joan Mitchell’s work has influenced subsequent generations of artists and is featured in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, and many of the world’s most distinguished institutions.
