About The Artist:

Freeman Butts (1928-1998) was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He studied art on the GI Bill at the Hollywood Art Center School from 1945-1947. He had a short stint at the Disney Studio before moving his family to Livingston, Montana where he joined a group of professors and other bohemians who developed a strong community of abstract expressionist artists living unconventional lives in this western outpost. He spent the remainder of his 50-year career as an artist painting primarily the female nude and interpreting the landscapes of southwestern Montana. These works testify to Butt's ability to merge a figurative style with abstraction. His work defines an era in American art that has a distinctive signature language. Supple paint handling and vigorous brushwork characterize this work and exhibit a gesturalism found in action painting. Looseness, fluidity of line, and speed of execution are evident in both his figurative work and the landscapes. His work is unapologetic about the use of the female model and demonstrates his authority on the use of fluidity of line in his subject matter.
