ROBERT FREEMAN

Robert Freeman (b.1946) is much admired for his bold, colorful brushwork and figurative paintings of well-heeled African-Americans at sophisticated gatherings. Characterized by overlapping shapes, energized lines and strong gestures, his subjects crowd to the front and edges of his paintings, sometimes taking on an aggressive, in-your-face stance with the viewer.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Freeman received his BFA and MFA degrees from Boston University, and he now resides in that area where he is a prominent artist and respected teacher.  He was artist-in-residence at Noble and Greenough School from 1981 until his recent retirement, and a lecturer and instructor at Harvard from 1988 to 1994.

Freemanís art is widely collected and his paintings have been exhibited at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Newport Art Museum, Zenith Gallery and in galleries in New York, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and beyond.
