Wilhelm Frederik Christian Freddie (February 7, 1909October 26, 1995) was a Danish painter and sculptor known for his surrealist works. Initially working along a somewhat abstract line, he soon turned towards a more realistic surrealism, only to later return to abstract art. Some of his works were highly controversial and considered pornographic at their time, resulting in confiscation of the works and imprisonment of Freddie, though his artistic merits were later recognized.
