BYDealers Auction House Biography and Notes

This unique triptych by American painter Joan Mitchell is among the few small-scale works she created, a rare gem for collectors. Its provenance is also worthy of mention: the sole proprietor was none other than Jean Paul Riopelle, Mitchell's life partner of nearly twenty-five years. In The Paintings of Joan Mitchell, Jane Livingston relates, "in 1972, when the critic Cindy Nemser visited Mitchell [at Vétheuil], the only painting not by [Riopelle] was a small Mitchell he owned, 'located in an inconspicuous space over a door in an upstairs room.'" The "small Mitchell" to which the New York critic referred was undoubtedly this triptych.
