Don Freeman has been known for his ability to infuse his lithographs of the daily existence of the common man with humanity as well as a heart warming sense of humor. He honed his talents and technique from several masters of American art, John Sloan, Harry Wickey and Charles Locke, while studying at the Art Students League in New York. While many of his contemporaries were busy drawing the rising skyline of New York Mr. Freeman was walking the streets, riding the buses and subways and all the while chronicling the daily lives of the common folk. These dramas are depicted most beautifully in scenes like All Saint's Day Celebration, Ira's First Suit and Dress Up Day and Late Editions.
