Barnett Freedman
A number of works were found in a family attic in about 2010. Barnett died in 1958 and through an Arts Council Memorial Exhibition shortly afterwards, a quantity of his remaining stock was dispersed. However, a number of items were put away at that time and are still available for sale on behalf of his family; I handled this until November 2018 when a workshop reorganisation necessitated a transfer to Emma Mason Gallery in Eastbourne (, and who will be handling all future sales – there is still wonderful material to be acquired.
Later this year Pallant House Gallery in Chichester will mount the first exhibition of Barnett's work since his death in 1958, in collaboration with Emma Mason, and this is extremely good news. In the 1980s and 1990s Professor Ian Rogerson singlehandedly championed Barnett's work, and wrote two elegant books on him for this Press, both of which were outstanding. It is such good news that this outstanding work by the finest lithographer of the 20th century will be recognised in the public sphere.
