Vintage paperback coffee table book featuring the work of artist, Joan Mitchell. By Judith E. Bernstock, published in 1988. First edition, 226 pages.
"Mitchell's art is one long series of variations on a theme: painting-as-poetry of a felling-infused landscape. Complex visions of a simple elemental nature - a flower, a tree, a river - her paintings appeal to our basic and universal concerns such as freedom, death, and immortality. Although some may consider it her art represents a timeless and deeply felt humanistic response to the good in humanity, linking it with history and with nature."
