Don Freeman

Freeman studied at the Art Students League in New York with John Sloan and Harry Wickey. Using a sketchbook, he recorded life in the theater and the various activities of people in New York City. His work appeared in many magazines and newspapers during the 1930's and 1940's. Freeman also printed his own publication, Newsstand, which he called "One Man's Manhattan." These lithographs, drawn on a zinc plate with catchy titles were sold for 50 cents and delivered to subscribers. They were published quarterly, sometimes bimonthly and even semiannually. He even wrote and illustrated children's books such as, Corduroy,Earl the Squirrel, and Norman the Doorman. Freeman's prints are in many art museums and universities throughout the country such as the Metropolitan, Whitney, Library of Congress, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
