Energetic brushstrokes and bold use of color characterize Joan Mitchell’s arresting paintings. The first exhibition to focus on her multi-paneled works “I carry my landscapes around with me” takes its title from something she stated in 1958: “I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me… I could certainly never mirror nature. I would like more to paint what it leaves me with.” See them at @DavidZwirner through July 12. • #JoanMitchell #MitchellLandscapes #DavidZwirner
