Lillian Freiman was born in Guelph, Ontario in 1908. Her family moved to Montreal, where she studied at the Art Association of Montreal and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Montreal under Edmond Dyonnet, Emmanuel Fougerat and Robert Mahias. She attended the Art Students League in New York and then moved to Paris for 13 years. The work of Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec had serious influence on Freiman’s work. In 1932, she traveled to Canada and held solo shows at the Jacoby Gallery (Montreal) and at the Wilson & Co., Ottawa. The next year she visited Canada and held a solo show at the Richard Gallery, Toronto. She went back to Paris and stayed until 1938, when the Second World War’s crisis forced her to leave France. She passed a brief time in Toronto and then settled in New York. She experimented with different techniques using pastel, crayon, watercolour on paper, as well as oil on canvas and on wood. She did studies of heads (mostly of women) and bird cages that were part of her collection. She won four prizes and a bursary at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Montreal and is represented in numerous collections, including the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston, Ontario; the Art Gallery of Cobourg, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria; McMaster University, Hamilton; the Department of External Affairs, Ottawa; among others. At the age of 78 years she died in New York.
