Joan Mitchell, (1925-1992), was a Chicago raised artist who began painting at an early age. Comfortable in both America and France she eventually permanently moved to Paris but maintained American ties. She was comfortable in both worlds and known for her large works full of color and drew inspiration from nature for her creations.
The exhibit at MOMA was vast and alluring. Videos of interviews Ms. Mitchell had given were played in the hall allowing further insight into the artist, and the creative insights which thrived in her work.,
