About the Catalogue Raisonné

The Joan Mitchell Catalogue Raisonné project was established in February 2015 in order to research Joan Mitchell’s paintings and to result in the eventual publication of a catalogue raisonné. This is intended be a scholarly, multi-volume book documenting all of the artist’s painted work, including entries for each painting with high quality reproductions, complete descriptive information and detailed histories of ownership, exhibitions, and literature.

If you own a painting that you believe to be by Joan Mitchell, please provide information on the artwork in your collection by clicking here. All information provided will remain strictly confidential.

The Joan Mitchell Catalogue Raisonné is a project supported by the Joan Mitchell Foundation. We do not authenticate artwork, nor issue opinions as to authenticity.
