Joan Mitchell was one of the pre-eminent painters of the Abstract Expressionist period. She came to attention in the early 1950s but it is only recently that her work has gained the recognition that it deserves. This book documents an exhibition of Mitchell's work at Hauser and Wirth Gallery, London, which featured works made between 1960 and 1964. In her paintings of this period, Mitchell moved away from the all-over style and bright colours of her earlier compositions, instead using sombre hues and dense central masses of colour to express something inchoate and primordial.
