This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Edith Emma Dorothea Hall was born October 10, 1883 in Seymour, Wisconsin and passed away November 28, 1965 in Westfield, New Jersey.  She was the daughter of Gottlieb and Johanna (Platz) Graf.  She married Arthur Gillespie Hall on October 18th, 1913 in Chicago, Illinois.  They had one son (Ralph Arthur Hall) in 1914.

From 1921-1924 the family traveled Europe (England, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, France, Germany and Tangier) for Arthur’s work.  According to the family’s history, Edith began painting sometime in her 40s, either while still in Europe or once they returned home to Cranford, New Jersey around 1928.  

After moving several places in New Jersey to accommodate Edith’s love of gardening the family settled in Westfield, New Jersey to facilitate her love of painting.  This house had a horse/hay barn in the back yard which was converted to studio/ work shop space.  Here Arthur made frames downstairs and Edith painted and gave lessons upstairs.

Her husband Arthur made frames out of wood and metals using a molder/shaper.  Edith then painted the frames to match the particular painting it was being used for.

Edith’s passion for gardening and landscapes became her inspiration for painting.  Her portfolio consists primarily of landscapes, still life and some portraits.  Another source of inspiration came from books.  Two books that she used to base some of her paintings from are Painting for Pleasure by Morris Davidson (1938) and Elementary Principles of Landscape Painting by John F. Carlson.

Training, Association and Awards:
Edith Hall received no formal training, though she did receive lessons in Westfield, New Jersey.  She was a member of the Westfield Artists Association and won several awards from shows that she entered.
