Professionally framed with archival materials and Plexiglas in natural wood (48" x 37-1/2" x 2). SIGNED and numbered' 66/70' in pencil by artist on recto (lr). Another impression from this edition is in the collection of the Walker Art Center (WAC), Minneapolis, MN and the Tate Britain, London, UK. Joan Mitchell, while having expolored printmaking throughout her four-decade career ultimately made relatively few prints. However, Mitchell's prints maintain the complexity, intensity, fluidity of line and abstract marks that have become synonymous with the visual language of her work.
Although this print is heavily abstracted, there are strong traces of the natural world, as the title indicates. Dense bands of marks at the top and bottom of the paper can be seen as river banks. The lightly-worked areas between suggest the water of the river itself. In 1981, Mitchell produced ten large lithographs collectively titled the Bedford series after the workshop's Bedford Village location in New York. Keen to facilitate Mitchell's drawing process, Tyler provided her with clear sheets of Mylar, which, when layered over one another on the studio wall, allowed her to view the entire image at once and thus work with greater immediacy.
For the printers, this served the dual function of creating instant color separations, which could then be directly transferred to photosensitive lithographic plates for proofing. Mitchell harnessed Tyler's innovative technique to expand her printmaking palette and incorporated up to ten colors in one work, marking a significant break from the more subdued tones of earlier prints. Mitchell is recognized as a principal figure and one of the few female artists in the second generation of American Abstract Expressionists, after the aesthetic breakthroughs of Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline. Her early works are characterized as turbulent and related to personal bereavement.
This turbulence is often expressed in opposites: dense versus transparent strokes, warm versus cool palettes, gridded structure versus chaos, and choppy versus continuous brushstrokes. Working for the most part on multiple panels or large-scale canvases, she strived to evince a natural, rather than constructed, rhythm from the composition, which emanated from the expansiveness of her gesture and from her uninhibited use of color. Mitchell received her BFA and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before establishing herself as a formidable talent in postwar New York's avant-garde scene. In 1951, her work was exhibited alongside that of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Hans Hoffman in the celebrated. , which marked the ascendancy of Abstract Expressionism within the development of modern art.Exemplifying the ideals of the New York School, Mitchell's paintings wager all on the expressive potential of the painterly mark itself, freed from the constraints of traditional representation. Given the macho posturing for which the movement's adherents have earned a reputation almost all of them were men Joan Mitchell's prowess in this milieu is all the more remarkable.
She has since been the subject of numerous museum exhibitions, and examples of her paintings and editioned prints hang in nearly all major public collections of modern art. Mitchell left New York and the United States for France in 1959. After spending the better part of a decade in Paris, she relocated to Vétheuil, France in 1968, a town on the Seine about 40 miles north of the capital. There in her studio she embarked upon a body of work whose subject matter derives from the sunflowers and natural beauty that thrive in the golden sunlight of the Seine valley.She would return to this source material periodically throughout the rest of her career. This series of stamps honored the artistic innovations and achievements of 10 abstract expressionists, a group of artists who revolutionized art during the 1940s and 1950s and moved the U.
To the forefront of the international art scene for the first time. The stamps went on sale March 11, 2010.
