In the late 1940s, Freilicher studied with New York School and abstract painter Hans Hofmann alongside Larry Rivers and Wolf Kahn. She declined to practice abstraction and instead chose to work with recognizable imagery through still-life, cityscape, and landscape paintings, often depicting views from her New York City apartment with Long Island summer home. In the Museum's work, her landscape, with its verdant greens and clear-water blues, floats against a red background.
