New York’s Paul Kasmin Gallery now represents the Estate of Jane Freilicher, which had previously been overseen by Tibor de Nagy Gallery. Paul Kasmin has planned its first Freilicher solo show for April 2018, with another presentation of the American painter’s work appearing at the upcoming edition of Art Dealers Association of America’s Art Show fair. Eric Brown Art Group has been named the adviser to the estate.
Freilicher, who died at age 90 in 2014, is best known for her stripped-down still lifes and landscapes, which are often rendered in coppery and greenish tones. Her most famous works feature flower arrangements placed in front of windows looking out onto downtown New York, though her minimalist paintings of Long Island have gone on to inspire a middle-aged group of painters, among them Maureen Gallace and Jane Wilson.
Somewhat unfashionable for decades, Freilicher’s paintings have come back into vogue as a new crop of figurative painters have found favor with critics. Her paintings are currently included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum, among other major institutions.
