Catalogue Note

“Thicketed at their centers with narrow stabs, smudges, and trickles of blacks and whites complicated with ochres, reds, and verdigris and spatially steadied with soft bruises of violet and blue, they dissolve at their edges into silver blues, misty grays, oyster whites, and bald gessoed ground....One can parse the 1953 paintings for the influences of Kandinsky, Mondrian, Gorky, and de Kooning, and one can note that they marry the permissions of New York painting with the rigor of Analytic Cubism, yet they were fully Mitchell’s own.”

Patricia Alberts cited in Joan Mitchell: A Lady Painter, New York, 2011, p.259
