Knill Freeman as an artist

Freeman was an accomplished artist, exhibiting at the Royal Academy nine times between 1882 and 1894. Most of these these were drawings of his buildings, the other being the The “Starved Monks” tomb at Tewkesbury Abbey. Other drawings, such as Hereford and Moreton Old Hall appeared in building journals. The Hereford drawing also appeared in Scientific American in 1888.
