In researching Impressionism, Freeman was drawn to how the Impressionists were influenced by the woodblock prints from Japan which they called "Japonism." Her work relates to this style in that it addresses frozen movement, odd angles and imbalanced compositions as well as the "snapshot" style in these Japanese woodblock prints.
