Art In America

Joan Mitchell

at Cheim & Read,
547 W 25th St

The gestural paintings in this show are all from the last three decades (1964-91) of Ab-Ex painter Joan Mitchell's career. Their titles (e.g., Hemlock, Tilleul [Linden Tree], Red Tree) clue the viewer in to Mitchell's subject matter, and indeed, upon closer inspection, sturdy trunks, tangled branches and clusters of leaves emerge from her lyrical brushstrokes. (A concurrent show of Mitchell's drawings and related works is right down the block at Lennon, Weinberg, through June 28.)
