Becoming recognised as one of the very finest women portraitists of the early 20th century, Mrs Hall (nee Rutherford) studied in Liverpool and subsequently in Paris under the noted French artist Delecluse.
She married George Hall Neale, who was himself a fine artist and President of the Society of Liverpool Artists.
Together the formed a formidable team, with him tending to portray men and she women sitters, often husband and wife.
She was extremely well known and regarded in women’s artistic circles, exhibiting 89 works at the Society of Women Artists, also some 100 paintings at the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool and 42 at the Royal Academy.
She was elected SWA in 1911.
This very lovely portrait is of a beautiful young lady, Joyce Mary Jacobsen.
It epitomises the simple elegence of the 1920s and is in particularly fine condition, possibly because, unusually for an oil, it has been glazed since it was painted. The frame is the original.
It is signed in full at bottom left.
[We sold another of her portraits some 9 months ago]
* Due to the size of this frame there is a slight distortion showing in the sides of the frame in the photograph -
