Thanks for stopping by. The paintings on this site are sold. Instead of putting available paintings on this website, I have them in a digital catalog that I can email to you. With my paintings appearing regularly in the NY Times Magazine and Wall Street Journal Magazine I find email correspondence and old-fashioned interaction the best way to sell paintings. I accept checks and wires. Smaller paintings ship by fedex; Larger paintings are delivered by art shuttle and can take 3 weeks.​ I am the only source for my paintings. No on-line sales. No galleries. No prints. Just unique paintings that have increased in price every year since 1990. Prices range from $5,500 to $150,000.

Mitchell Johnson’s color and shape driven paintings appear regularly in the New York Times Magazine. Throughout the 1990’s Johnson exhibited brushy, expressionistic landscapes of France, Italy and California at major galleries in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. In the 2000’s his work began to change; the shapes in his paintings became larger and the color interest was more pronounced. Shortly after a 2005 viewing of a Josef Albers/Giorgio Morandi exhibit at the Museo Morandi in Bologna, Johnson made his first painting trip to Cape Cod, and the impact of the Bologna exhibit was immediately clear in the on-going series of North Truro paintings that have made Johnson famous throughout the US. Johnson divides his time between his California studio and painting trips to Cape Cod, Asia and Europe. His work has appeared in ArtForum, the Wall Street Journal Magazine and Art in America. His paintings are in the permanent collections of 25 museums and over 700 private collections. Johnson has been a visiting artist at both The American Academy in Rome and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
