Hall, Clifford 1904-1973 British AR, The Bull Fight, 10 x 14 ins., (25.5 x 35.5 cms.), Gouache, Signed and Dated 1949. In 1949 Hall led a painting school in Benidorm, then a picturesque fishing village. Bull Fight is a splendid evocation of the dual nature of bull fighting, it's utter cruelty and at the same time excitement and terrific skills. His clever use of black and the highlighted bull and matador give the painting great presence and vitality.
