Title: Atlantic City from the Bay
Media: Oil on canvas, 20 1/4 × 16 1/4 inches

Invitation to opening reception on verso: “Berus Gallery is pleased to invite you to/the opening of an exhibition of: Bucks Co. Landscape and Still Life Paintings by /ELIZABETH FREEDLEY PRICE; and/Altantic [sic] City Views by GEORGE FREEDLEY/ Artists Reception 1–6 p.m., Sun., Dec. 13, 1981 ”
Exhibited: Berus Gallery, Lambertville, New Jersey, Bucks County Landscape and Still Life Paintings by Elizabeth Freedley Price and Atlantic City Views by George Freedley (Dec. 1981)

Although Freedley was closely associated with the Impressionist art colony in New Hope, he was particularly noted for his New Jersey shore scenes.1 These two undated views of Atlantic City, with their indistinct forms, tonalism, and thinly applied paint layers that accent the coarse textures of the canvas supports, reflect the influence of James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903).
