Description

A charming pastel coloured watercolour of ‘The Rialto Bridge, Venice’ by Gertrude Crompton.

Gertrude (Mrs G. Hall) was born in West Tanfield in 1874, Yorkshire and educated in London, studying art at the Westminster School of Art and then in Paris.

She is recorded as living in Kensington and Fowey in Cornwall.  In the late 1940s she moved to Nailsworth in Gloucestershire.

She was a member of the St. Ives Society of Artists and exhibited at:

Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Paris Salon, Society of Women Artists, St. Ives Society of Artists, the renowned Goupil Gallery, International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers.

Frances Hodgkins a leading New Zealand artist active in England from 1913 wrote: “I stayed some days with friend Gertrude Crompton at her house built on exposed and very steep cliff – her folly I called it…Why do very practical-minded people with great souls loving humanity, build houses on remote and isolated, windswept rocks?”

An example of her work is held in the collection of the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath
