The Formidable Joan Mitchell (American, 1925 - 1992)

July 18, 2022

The legacy of painter Joan Mitchell (American, 1925 - 1992) is one of a formidable creative force. Her work forged a pathway into the nearly impenetrable male-dominated abstract expressionist circles of the 1950s. She garnered critical acclaim and success, as she distinguished herself from her contemporaries through compositions that vibrate with energy and color. From painting, to drawings, to prints, her work elegantly synthesizes landscape, with memory, poetry, and music while retaining the intimacy and emotive potential of the abstractionist movement. Read more about Joan Mitchell and Flower II (T. 370), 1981 a large format lithograph on view at Kodner Gallery!

John Sloan

May 29, 2020

John Sloan studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, from 1892 to 1894. He sold his first canvas at the age of 14. He regularly worked as an illustrator for newspapers such as the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Press, but he also designed advertising and taught himself the technique of engraving. On the advice of Robert Henri, he moved to New York in 1904 and subsequently became a member of The Eight. Sloan was politically active and joined the Socialist Party in 1910; he stood for election to the New York State Assembly the same year but was defeated and stood again in 1915. He trained at the Art Students League in New York in 1916 and was elected president in 1931 but resigned the following year to join the Archipenko School of Art. He joined the League again in 1935. In 1929, he was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His teaching has influenced a whole generation of artists.

With Artist Frank Stella, What You See Is What You See
