Cemetery 24 Freed William.jpgWilliam Freed (1902-1984).

For more than half of a century, Freed and Lillian Orlowsky (1914-2007) shared their lives and their evolution as abstract artists. They “left a strong stamp, both socially and artistically, on the art worlds of New York and Provincetown,” The Boston Globe said in 2008. Orlowsky learned of Hans Hofmann’s Provincetown school while waiting to pick up her check as a W.P.A. artist in Manhattan. She and Freed both studied with Hofmann and worked out of the Days Lumber Yard until the late 1950s, when they built their studios on 23 Brewster Street.
