Biography Ann Hall
A greatly respected painter of delicate miniature portraits as well as florals, she was the first and only woman to become a full member of the National Academy in New York before 1900. Today her work would likely be regarded as too sentimental and sweetly religious, but she was much sought after for commissions by members of New York society.
She was born in Pomfret, Connecticut, and her precocious artistic talents were encouraged by her cultured father, a physician. During a visit to Newport, Rhode Island, she learned the technique of painting miniatures on ivory from Samuel King, Gilbert Stuart's teacher. In New York, she later studied oil painting with Alexander Robertson, one of the earliest art teachers in America.
