Barnett Freedman PortraitBritish painter, lithographer, illustrator and designer. At 15, Freedman's talent for drawing led to jobs as a draughtsman for a monumental mason, then for an architect.

After five years' evening study at St Martin's School of Art, London, he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art (1922–5), where he later became a teacher himself. As a painter, Freedman was neither reactionary nor avant-garde; traditional subject-matter, in a subdued but contemplative manner, gave little hint of his ebullient personality.

He is remembered chiefly as a pioneer of colour autolithography for machine production at the Curwen and Baynard presses, which he achieved by transferring drawings on stone to offset plates.
