Show synopsis Jane Freilicher, one of the most admired painters at work today, came of age in the era of Abstract Expressionism. Studying with Hans Hofmann, she became a pivotal member of an important group of New York artists and writers, including the poet John Ashbery (who has written poems in which she figures), the photographer Rudy Burckhardt, and the painters Fairfield Porter and Larry Rivers. Yet for more than 50 years, she has pursued her own distinctive style, an intimate and painterly realism. This book is a comprehensive survey of Freilicher's career, written by Klaus Kertess, a well-known authority on contemporary art. Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 images, the volume features five decades of her work, including the New York cityscapes, landscapes of Long Island, and still lifes, especially of flowers, for which she is best known. This beautiful monograph will stand as the book on a painter whose unique vision, long acclaimed by her fellow artists, has attracted increasing critical interest and what one writer has called a cult following among collectors.
