A catalogue for an exhibition of Joan Mitchell's Sunflower pictures held at the Cheim & Read Gallery, New York. Mitchell moved to Vetheuil, a town forty miles north of Paris, in 1968 and it was here that she was inspired, like Van Gogh, by the fields of Sunflowers that grew outside of her studio. She returned to the motif throughout her career and these paintings and works on paper are presented within the catalogue.
