A very good impression.

Freeman was born in San Diego, California and studied at the San Diego School of Fine Arts. He moved to New York in 1929, just days before the stock market crashed, and continued his studies at the Art Students League, with John Sloan (1871-1951) as one of his instructors. He developed a social realist style, often depicting life around Times Square. During the 1930s he worked in the graphics division of the WPA. Later in his career he illlustrated and wrote childrens' book, most famously Corduroy. McCulloch 97.
