Hall Thorpe Bio Title

John Hall Thorpe was born in Victoria, Australia in 1874. He was apprenticed in Sydney to John Fairfax and Sons where he learned drawing and wood-engraving.

In 1902 Hall Thorpe went to London, England and worked as an artist for several newspapers; where he also continued his studies at Heatherley’s and at St. Martins School of Art.

Hall Thorpe’s coloured woodcuts date from the early 1920's and the context of his work from this period was very much one of interior ‘house decoration’ with woodcuts of gaily coloured vases of flowers and other objets d'art.

In London, Hall Thorpe exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists and held a one-man exhibition at the Kensington Fine Arts Society Gallery in May 1918. Interestingly, several of his woodcuts were produced under American copyright.

Today, his woodcuts are represented in the collections of: Victoria and Albert Museum, London; British Museum, London; Australian National Gallery, Canberra; Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, Victoria.

John Hall Thorpe passed away in 1947.
