Rosanna Hardin Hall, a 1952 graduate of Tudor Hall, is a plein air painter who has devoted much time to the study of art and the creation of prize-winning paintings. Her sense of adventure and love of painting gardens, in particular, have taken her to many locales. She is currently working on her second book in her Travel Tales at the Easel series. It will focus on her love of tropical landscapes, her painting trips to the South Pacific, and her admiration for the paintings of Paul Gauguin. The first book, Poesia: A Memoir of Painting in Venetian Gardens with Giorgione, shares her love of Venice, especially during the High Renaissance, and the artist Giorgione, her favorite painter of that period.
Rosanna received her BFA from the Herron School of Art and MFA from the University of Hawaii. In addition, she has studied art in France and Italy. Her gallery, Villa dell’Artista, is in historic Woodruff Place in Indianapolis. You may view her works from around the globe at www.rosannahall.net.
Her parents, William Hall and Betsy Toy Hall, were graduates of Park School and Tudor Hall.
