Fred Hall RBC NEAC (1860 - 1948)
Born at Stillington in Yorkshire, Hall studied at
Lincoln School of Art and at Verlat's Academy in Antwerp in the early
1880s. He settled briefly in Newlyn in 1885 but had moved to Somerset by
the end of the decade. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, the New
English Art Club, the Fine Art Society and the Paris Salon where he won a
gold medal in 1912. Hall specialised in impressionistic landscapes
painted in warm glowing colour often painted plein-air.Paintings are attributed to Fred Hall, signed *(F. Hall)*. Avant guard surreal watercolours
of Corfe Castle, Swanage on corregated card and signed. Advanced experimental technique
for the period - dating late Victorian.
Originality makes up for the lack of quality and could well be plein-air subjects.
