A renowned colorist, Jane Freilicher was called “one of the last true scions of Giorgio Morandi” by critic Franklin Einspruch. Early in her career she adopted tenets of Abstract Expressionism and action painting, but since her shift to figuration decades ago she has engaged but one subject: still lifes, typically of flowers arranged on windowsills with a city or country vista in the background. Imbuing aspects of her earlier gestural style into her representational images, Freilicher is credited as one of the major proponents of “painterly realism,” a style that renders her still lifes viscerally powerful. In Bouquets (2011), for example, several vases and flower boxes assume an uncanny monumentality against the dark night sky, commanding their sill, according to New York Times critic Roberta Smith, “like immense, slightly anthropomorphic monoliths.”
