Patricia Albers:JOAN MITCHELL: LADY PAINTER. A LIFE.

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 2:00pm

Joan Mitchell was one of the most original and passionate artists of the last half of the Twentieth Century. She painted her large abstract canvases with the precision of a fencer creating paintings that were “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.”Mitchell may have called herself a “lady painter”, but she was a blunt, bawdy and bullying presence who mixed it up with the likes of Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning and Phillip Guston. Our guest tonight is writer and curator PATRICIA ALBERS who has written one of the most complete, incisive and entertaining biographies of this great artist: JOAN MITCHELL: LADY PAINTER. A LIFE.
