Salut Tom (Mitchell, 1979)

So I took J to the Corcoran on Sunday morning to see the collection (for free!) before it gets swallowed by the NGA.  Lots of good stuff - plenty of 19th Century American - Niagara Falls, the West, that Biersdadt:

But what really grabbed my attention was a massive late (France-era) Joan Mitchell - Salut Tom:

Which just _breathes_.  And, of course, is infinitely better in person.  That and the Bontecou would be well worth seeing again. 

J counted 10 horse paintings, which, of course, she duly recorded in her notebook.
