Portraits of Golden Cap
Local artist Edward Hall draws his inspiration from the dramatic coastal and inland landscapes of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. At Lyme Regis Museum’s Rotunda Gallery from 18 January until 5 March, his latest exhibition, ‘Portraits of Golden Cap’, explores the iconic form and setting of this highest point on the south coast.
Hall’s formative years in rural Essex and Cumbria nurtured his love of the outdoors and a lifelong passion to explore and interpret the landscapes around him through painting. After a busy career as a chartered landscape architect that left little time for painting, he made a recent lifestyle change that resulted in a move to West Dorset. Living in Ryall, the village on the slopes of Hardown Hill between Lyme and Bridport, he didn’t have to venture far from home for the inspiration that led to his series of paintings entitled ‘A Year on Hardown Hill’, exhibited at the Sou’-Sou’-West Gallery at Symondsbury in 2021.
