To fund the comprehensive retrospective Joan Mitchell: Fierce Beauty. The exhibition brings together signature canvases with rarely seen paintings and works on paper in a presentation that highlights the artist’s varied creative processes, while illuminating her impact on postwar painting on both sides of the Atlantic. The retrospective travels from the Baltimore Museum of Art, a co-organizer, and then to SFMOMA, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York) and the Foundation Louis Vuitton (Paris), and is accompanied by an English-language catalogue.
