Bill Hall was one of the master printers at Pace Prints for nearly thirty years. He was in charge of the intaglio area and specializes in aquatint. His earliest years in New York were spent working at the legendary Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. After his arrival at Pace Prints, his intaglio skills were honed under the tutelage of Aldo Crommelynck, the legendary printer of many of Picasso’s late prints. Bill is a soft-spoken, southern gentleman and an artist in his own right. Now retired from Pace, Bill and his wife, Sara, live in Asheville, NC. His work is represented by Momentum Gallery in Asheville.
