Jane Freilicher, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, is an American painter best known for her Southampton landscapes, Manhattan skylines and still lifes. Freilicher studied with Hans Hofmann and Meyer Shaprio, yet established her own painting-style, a marriage of abstraction and representational painting, in which Freilicher exquisitely creates a balance between depiction and suggestion. Freilicher’s work encourages a sustained observation to note her expert, yet subtle shifts and changes from atmosphere to color to light to brushstroke.
Jane Freilicher’s home and studio was located in Mecox Bay of Walter Mill, Long Island. This close and personal placement allowed Freilicher to capture the bay from different angles and perspectives illuminating the artist’s feelings toward the location. Freilcher's adept hand creates a landscape, alive and breathing with bright colors exploring the east end view from Freilicher’s home, and conveying an optimistic and benign rapport.
