According to Gwen Rankin, biographer of Lindsay Bernard Hall and author of The Man The Art World Forgot, the following work “was not painted by Bernard Hall despite the signature which has been added by some other hand in recent years. The artist was almost certainly Hall’s son, Oswald, although the signature is not his either”.
Thank you very much. I hope this can be useful to correct this wrong information about Bernard Hall’s work.

  1. These are lovely. Thank you.

    Could you please correct the information in this entry as regards two pictures. The picture entitled Nude Study was not painted by Bernard Hall despite the signature which has been added by some other hand in recent years. The artist was almost certainly Hall’s son, Oswald, although the signature is not his either. Then the picture entitled The Red Fan, although definitely painted by Bernard Hall, is not the picture he gave this name. He called it Colour Medley – one of a series of three pictures -,all nudes – in which he explored the potential of coloured draperies on his studio couch. One of the three is in the National Gallery of Australia and another – in private collection – has also been erroneously re-named by an auction house, this time as The Sleeping Beauty. As Hall’s biographer I regret that, in the absence of the original names, the intent of the artist is lost.
