John Hall Thorpe 1874 – 1947 Australian-born moved to London in 1902. Member of the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. Attended Heatherley’s School of Art. By 1919 he had begun to make the style of colour woodcut which made him famous. He held his first one man show of his colour woodcuts in London in 1918 and his success immediate. Main exhibitor at the Colour Woodcut Society. The brightly coloured woodcuts of John Hall Thorpe became an international phenomenon during the 1920’s and 30’s. Created specifically to provide bright, colourful decoration, Hall Thorpe’s hand-made prints were produced as a reaction against what he saw as the dull, laborious realism in people’s homes at the time.
