Chamber Works by Frederick C. Frieseke; Nicholas Kilmer. Hollis Taggart Galleries, NY, 2000.
Hardback ISBN #: 097057231
An essential resource for any student of Frieseke, this book includes a biography of the artist by his grandson, Nicholas Kilmer, author of A Place in Normandy and the "Fred Taylor" mysteries. This biography is organized around the particular works chosen for the exhibition for which the book serves as a catalog. Most of the works are from the collection of the artist's grandaughter, Frances Frieseke Kilmer. Images of 75 oils, watercolors, and drawings are reproduced; few of those are reproduced alsewhere.
Carefully researched from primary sources, Nick's work provides the accuracy so often lacking in other places. A Forward by Hollis Taggart and Vivian Bullaudy of Hollis Taggart Galleries provides additional insights into Frieseke's place in Art History.
The 7 x 8.5" landscape format makes it an easy-to-carry companion to the voluminous Frederick Carl Friesekde: the Evolution of an American Impressionist.
