Publisher's Summary

A poetic immersion into the life and art of Joan Mitchell, the great American abstract expressionist painter.

A contemporary of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell is not as well-known as her male counterparts, not only because she was a woman, but also because she spent most of her working life in France. Still, in 2013, Bloomberg listed Mitchell as the best-selling female artist of all time.

When asked to talk about her paintings, Joan Mitchell often responded, "If I could say it in words, I'd write a book." Here is her book. At once unique and universal, Blue Territory is at its core an exploration of love and life, and what it means to love - and live - what you do. Meticulously researched and lyrically written, it will appeal to anyone interested in passionate engagement with the world.

WH pronunciation pet peeve.

this book is really engaging and it gives you an amazing inside of Joan's process. The narrator does a great job at adding depth to the words, they are profound and poetic but OMG. she pronounces white, while, wheet in the most annoying way. 🤣 just a heads up.
