Biography

 

illustrator, and glass designer, Hall was elected a full member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1961 and a member of the Royal Watercolour Society in 1970.

Like his fellow Rome scholars, Freeth and Cowern, Hall was too young to benefit from the commercial boom of the etching market and few of his prints were editioned. Further than this, he was not prolific as a printmaker. His outstanding figurative etchings rarely appear on the market today.

Hallís etchings have stylistic similarities to those of his close contemporary Vernon Hill and his figures share the solid monumentality of his fellow Rome scholar William E.C. Morgan. However Hallís works are distinguished by their remarkable interpretation of emotion in ordinary people.
