Clifford Hall -  'Nude on a Sofa'...
Click images to view full size.

Oil on canvas, about 14 x 16 inches canvas size and about 21.4 x 23.3 inches in its more recent frame.
The painting is signed by the artist lower left and it is dated 1946. As is the usual, the artist has inscribed the stretcher with details of the varnishing of the work in 1948.
We think the sitter is the artist's friend Hanna Weil (1921-2011), also an artist. The artist's son, Mr Geraint Richard Hall, has kindly advised us that when the picture was painted the chaise longue sofa would have been in the artist's large studio room at 8, Trafalgar Studios, Manresa Road, Chelsea, London SW3. The provenance of the painting is Christie's 6th September 2001 lot 86 when sold for £1300 excluding the buyer's premium. Both the painting and frame are in very good condition.

Price: £1,975 inclusive of UK shipping
