One of the few women artists associated with Abstract Expressionism, Mitchell managed to garner critical acclaim in spite of the sexism of the time, and the fact that her male colleagues were not hesitant to call attention to themselves. Mitchell also spent most of her career outside New York, living and working in France. Still, her efforts were in every respect equal to those of De Kooning, Pollock et al. As this show amply demonstrates, her paintings were distinguished by a deep attachment to landscape, in a way that ultimately derived from Monet's late work.
