The Process: Chicago’s Forgotten Artist – Joan Mitchell, Lady Painter

Joan Mitchell was a pioneer of sorts.  She joked about being a lady painter, but held her own with the likes of Jackson Pollack and other abstract expressionists when she moved from Chicago to New York and then on to France.  Her works challenged the male dominated artist scene, redefining the vision of abstract by pushing the boundaries of the palette.
On this week’s Process, Patricia Albers, author of the biography, Joan Mitchell: Lady Painter A Life, is in Chicago for the Printer’s Row Lit Fest this weekend and spoke with WCRX-FM’s Barbara Calabrese.
