FREEMAN, James Edward, artist, born in Nova Scotia in 1808, died in London, England, 21 November 1884. His parents removed to Otsego, New York, where his early life was spent. After many hardships and difficulties he made his way to New York, where he entered the National academy of design. He became an associate in 1831 and was elected an academician in 1833. For a while he painted in western New York, and removed to Rome in 1836, where he resided until his death. He was a painter of genre pictures and portraits. Among his works are "The Beggars," "The Flower Girl," "The Savoyard Boy in London." "Young Italy." "The Bad Shoe," "The Crusaders' Return," "Study of an Angel," "Study of a Head of Judith," "The Mother and Child'" (1868), and "The Lucchese Peasants on the Sands of the Sezchio" (1883). He published "Gatherings from an Artist's Portfolio" (New York, 1877).
His wife, Horatia Augusta Latilla, sculptor, born in London, England, 28 August 1826, was of Italian and English parentage. She was married in 1847, and, devoting her life to sculpture, has executed several works that show artistic talent. Among these are "The Princes in the Tower," "The Triumph of Bacchus," and "The Culprit Fay," which is the most ideal of her productions. She has also made fonts, chimneypieces, and vases, both in marble and wood.
