Description: The Rising Moon signed '...Hall' (lower right) oil on canvas 15 3/4 x 20 in. (40 x 51 cm.)
Artist or Maker: Frederick Hall (1860-1948)
Provenance: with Messum's, British Impressionism, Autumn 2004, no.9.
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.
