Joan Mitchell's 1970s work at the Baltimore Museum of Art was perhaps my favorite part of the exhibit. I wish I could have taken photos of her 1980s and early 1990s work, but unfortunately photography was not allowed in those rooms.
Joan Mitchell: Bonjour Julie, 1971
Joan Mitchell: Weeds, 1976
With a general revival in painting in the mid 1970s, Mitchell's work was starting to be appreciated by a new audience. She was also looking to van Gogh for inspiration at times.
Joan Mitchell: No rain, 1976
Having the opportunity to see this many Joan Mitchell pieces in one place was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you to the Baltimore Museum of Art and everyone involved for making this exhibit a reality.
