Robert Freiman, born deaf, was known for trying to capture the motion of figures and life with his brush. He watched dancers, athletes, and performers trying to create movement in a still medium. Born in New York, he attended the Lexington School for the Deaf and his artistic talents were soon apparent. He furthered his studies at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League, Parsons School of Design, and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. His work is in several private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Connecticut Museum at New Britain.
