“I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me – and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves with me.”

This untitled oil on canvas, executed in 1960 by Joan Mitchell (1925-92), had been acquired by our client at auction in 2006.
