About

This small multicolor abstract is an exemplar work of America's most unique artistic movement, Abstract Expressionism, by one of its pioneers Fred Mitchell. This vibrantly colorful landscape is oil on canvas and exhibits the depth of creativity in Mitchell's work. The painting is signed by the artist with a verified signature. This work has been framed in an original handmade wood frame. Fred Mitchell was born in 1923 in Meridian, Mississippi. He studied at Carnegie Mellon University, then finished his studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art where he earned his MFA. He continued his studies concurrently at the Accademia di Belle Arti, Instituto Meschini in Rome, Italy. On a Pepsi Cola cash award he funded his trip to Rome where he would be influenced by fellow painters John Heliker, Afro (Basadella), and Philip Guston. He eventually became part of the New York scene where Abstract Expressionism was breaking out, joining the "Downtown Group" and then organizing the Tanager Gallery with Angelo Ippolito, Lois Dodd, Charles Cajori and William King. He passed away in 2013. For much of his life Fred Mitchell would spend it teaching art at a number of schools which included the Neighborhood House, Finch College, Positano Art Workshop, Cranbrook Academy of Arts, the Downtown Art Center, New York University, Cornell University, Queens College, Southern Tip School of Art, the Parsons School of Design Master of Fine Arts, the Art Students League of New York, and the Kingsborough Community College. His work has been exhibited at the Detroit Institute of Arts, National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Stable Gallery in New York, the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, the U.S. State Department, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
