John Hall 1921 – 2006: Art Retrospective

John Hall was held in great affection by a generation of students at Cambridge School of Art where he taught from 1950 to1983. This retrospective follows his death at eighty five in 2006.  An accomplished artist and designer, he admired good craftsmanship in all its forms and strove for it in his own work. John’s intense curiosity for how things are made and a constant questing for historical knowledge, together with a deep aesthetic appreciation, underlay all his work, whether he was painting a landscape in oils, drawing from the figure or designing a set for an opera staged at the Mumford Theatre.
