Joan Mitchell : Retrospective, Museum Ludwig, Cologne

Joan Mitchell : Retrospective. Her Life and Paintings
Museum Ludwig, Cologne

November 14, 2015 - February 21, 2016

In partnership with the Kunsthaus Bregenz and in close cooperation with the Joan Mitchell Foundation in New York, the Museum Ludwig is presenting a major retrospective of the legendary artist Joan Mitchell (1925–1992). The show focuses on her painting, ranging from early works from the 1950s to her later work during the final years of her life. Joan Mitchell’s work is placed within the art-historical context of the period following Abstract Expressionism or in the milieu of the New York School. With some thirty paintings, some of which are very large-format and span several panels, the show at the Museum Ludwig presents one of the most important figures in twentieth-century art.
