Street Scene by Barnett Freedman

Barnett Freedman

Born in East London to Jewish immigrants from Russia, Freedman showed an early talent for drawing. He studied at the Royal College of Art from 1922-25 under Paul Nash alongside Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, Edward Burra and Enid Marx. Nash referred to this period at the college as “an outbreak of talent”.

Freedman was an official war artist during World War II and is still to this day considered amongst one of the greatest graphic artists and book illustrators of his time.
