Self taught as an artist, Hall was particularly influenced by Paul Klee and Alfred Wallis and Irish artist Patrick Scott. Hall defined the subjective element in art as ‘that which is contributed by the artist from the depths of his own nature’. Untitled is among the largest of his known oeuvre. Anthropomorphized cloud forms appear to stroll and loll about the landscape. Its dreamlike quality and simple clear composition also vaguely recall Belgian artist René Magritte’s form of surrealism.

About the Artist

Kenneth Hall 1913–1946

Self taught artist Kenneth Hall worked in furniture design before becoming a painter. His first exhibition took place at the Lucy Wertheim Gallery, London, in 1934. The following year he met the painter Basil Rakoczi and together they formed the White Stag Group. At the outbreak of the Second World War, Hall and Rakoczi moved to Galway, and then Dublin where they held the first White Stag Group exhibition. Hall continued to exhibit with the White Stag Group until he returned to London in 1945.
