Influential American painter, Joan Mitchell (1925–1992), was a leading figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement of the mid-20th century. Breaking boundaries as a female artist, Mitchell achieved critical acclaim in a male-dominated art world. This book provides an intimate portrait of the artist through a collection of previously unpublished conversations with Mitchell’s closest friends. From artists, art historians, and personalities such as Paul Auster and Zuka, this book brings together Guy Bloch-Champfort's interviews, revealing new character traits and stories about the artist. The author was a close friend of Mitchell and the coordinator of her estate after her death.
