'The avant-gardes of the twentieth century, including Abstract Expressionist painting, were led by men, but Jackson Pollock and all the others could not stop Joan Mitchell. The legendary and now increasingly recognized artist, who emigrated to France in the 1950s, developed her own form of abstract painting in the milieu of the New York School: a poetic style between calculation and emotion, one which both seduces the senses and stimulates the intellect. With some thirty paintings, some of which are very large-format and span several panels, the show at the Museum Ludwig presents one of the most important figures in twentieth-century art.'
