Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: The Rising Moon
signed '...Hall' (lower right)
oil on canvas
15 3/4 x 20 in. (40 x 51 cm.)

Notes: The opalescent moon and the warm golden glow that fills this downland landscape are characteristic of Fred Hall's mature style. With Frank Bramley, Hall became one of the earliest members of the Newlyn School. They had both studied at the Antwerp Academy under Baron Leys, and when they arrived in Newlyn in 1884 their aim was to apply rugged social realism to an English context. By 1897 Hall had departed Newlyn for good, and turned towards a softer mood and a brighter palette, as had Clausen and La Thangue.

No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 17.5% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.

Provenance: with Messum's, British Impressionism, Autumn 2004, no.9.

Artist or Maker: Frederick Hall (1860-1948)
