George Henry Hall (George Henry Hall)

George Henry Hall

Artist.  A noted painter of orientalist subjects, figure painting and still lifes. From 1849 to 1852 he studied art in Dusseldorf,  Paris, and Rome, where he opened a studio.  Upon his return to to the US he settled in New York City,  though he would later devote another 20 years to traveling.  This provided the often exotic subject matter of many of his canvases,  including the famous  “Interior of a Rug Bazaar”,  which he painted while visiting Egypt. He was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1868. (bio by: milkyway)
