Hohmann Fine Art is proud to represent the estate of Robert Freimark, who resided in the Silicon Valley most of his life.
Robert Freimark was one of the great unsung artists of his generation. A true West Coast Abstract Expressionist, Freimark's work is characterized by its bold use of color and organic forms.
