TIBOR DE NAGY GALLERY
Jane Freilicher: Painter Among Poets
Introduction by Eric Brown. Text by Jenni Quilter. Appreciation by John Ashbery.
Jane Freilicher: Painter Among Poets is a follow-up to the superb 2011 publication Tibor de Nagy Gallery: Painters and Poets. It examines painter Jane Freilicher’s important role at the center of the so-called New York School of poetry formed by John Ashbery, Frank O’Hara, Kenneth Koch and James Schuyler, and explores in depth for the first time Freilicher’s contribution as muse, collaborator and confidante. It includes color reproductions of the artist’s work, including landscapes, cityscapes and portraits of the poets (some of which are previously unreproduced); photographs of the group and letters from the Ashbery and Freilicher archives at Harvard; a selection of poems by Ashbery, Schuyler and O’Hara, including O’Hara’s celebrated early poems inspired by Freilicher and unpublished works; an intimate appreciation by John Ashbery; and a revelatory essay by scholar Jenni Quilter.
