Barnett Freedman

Barnett Freedman was born in London to a poor Jewish family which had recently emigrated from Russia. He studied part-time at St.Martin’s School of Art and was later encouraged by William Rothenstein to study at the Royal College of Art between 1922-25 where he later returned to teach.

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.
