Frederick Hall (1860-1948)
Born in Stillington, Yorkshire, Hall studied art at the Lincoln School of Art between 1879 and 1881, before moving on to study under Michel Marie Charles Verlat in Antwerp.
He was an English impressionist painter of landscapes, rustic subjects, and portraits who exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists on Suffolk Street, London, the Grosvenor Gallery, the New Gallery, and the New English Art Club, but resigned from the latter in 1890 and the Paris Salon, where he was awarded a gold medal in 1912.
He became a member of the Newlyn School in Cornwall at some time between 1883 and 1885 although the exact date is uncertain. He remained there, joining fellow ex-Lincoln School of Art student Frank Bramley, until 1898.
He was an important member of the Newlyn School, in Cornwall, and is notable for his artistic development away from the strict realism of the Newlyn School towards impressionism.
