On May 4, Hindman Auctions will present Joan Mitchell's "Untitled, 1989" as a centerpiece of its Post War and Contemporary Art auction, where it will be offered with an estimate of $500,000-700,000. Mitchell was a renowned female voice who gained recognition during the second wave of the Abstract Expressionist movement in 1950s New York. She worked in a variety of mediums throughout her career and is widely recognized as one of the most significant artists of the post war era.
The artist has strong ties to Chicago as she was born and raised in the city and earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2018, Hindman set a global record for Mitchell's Untitled (Pastel), 1991 when it sold for $1,212,500, which is the highest price realized at auction for a work on paper by the artist.
Alexander Calder's Pyramidal Shapes (lot 35, estimate $200,000-300,000) and Jim Nutt's Did you Hear Something? (lot 51, estimate $100,000--150,000) will also be included in this auction.
On May 5, Hindman will present its Prints and Multiples auction as part of this ongoing Fine Art Sale. (All details here, https://hindmanauctions.com/)
