More About This Book

Overview

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.

Author Bio: Klaus Kertess, an authority on contemporary art, has contributed articles and essays to numerous journals and exhibition catalogues. He has published a number of books, including works on contemporary artists and novels. John Ashbery, the well-known poet, is a personal friend of the artist. Thomas Nozkowski is a highly regarded painter in New York who, like Freilicher, exhibits his work at Tibor de Nagy Gallery.

    An Artist's Artist

    Few contemporary artists whose work has spanned the past half century have the committed following personally and artistically as Jane Freilicher. Through the explosions of America's art movement - Abstract Expressionism - and through the various other trends in art that have enhanced our art scene, Freilicher's lovely canvases have always stood as oases of tranquility and grounding. This magnificently produced monograph could not be more fitting for such a fine artist. What makes Freilicher's art so meaningful? Surely not the choice of subject matter which has always been the New York Skylines, Long Island porches, gardens and vistas, and table tops with explosions of flowers plucked from the garden. No, it is not the subject but instead the honesty of simple approach to the subject, capturing nature and life as a state of intimacy and worthy of realistic representation. The more than 150 images make their own ebullient and colorful statements, defying reduction to words. Not that the accompanying words don't enhance Freilicher's art! The texts are by poet and longtime friend John Ashbery and the fine art historian Klaus Kertess. The essays inform the art almost as much as the art informs the quality of writing. In every way this is a first class monograph of a growingly important artist of our time. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp
