In 1967, Mitchell purchased a two-acre estate in Vétheuil, France, the gardener's cottage of which had previously been home to Impressionist Claude Monet.

Description

During the final quarter century of her career, Joan Mitchell made a significant number of multipanel paintings, including Some More, comprising three equal-sized canvases whose composition bridges their shared edges. While the painting’s color and texture connote nature—such as a bed of flowers or shimmering sunlight—its rhythmic interaction of brushwork also suggests a source in music. In fact, Mitchell loved listening to opera while working in her studio during this period.
