Mitchell Riopelle synopsis
The first print is lavishly illustrated offering a side-by-side view of the painters despite 25 years spent together and famous for each. This important catalog is a reference work that combines the creative relationship that united John Mitchell (1925-1992), an American painter often associated with the second generation of the New YorkSchool of Experimental Expressions and Jean Paul Reubel (1923-2002).

Whether this attention is directed at the similarities and differences between works that deal with the same subject, or the decorations and inspiration of each, this book will draw a wonderful picture of two prominent figures in the international movement extracted..
