In the 20th century, photography was still in its infancy and both the production and printing of photographs were very complex and costly. Many news magazines and newspapers therefore relied on the work of illustrators to depict events in the world. The British Sydney Prior Hall was one of the most important illustrators of Victorian England, who not only inspired the masses but also the British high nobility with his works.

Sydney Prior Hall was born in 1842 in Suffolk into a well-known family of artists. His father had already made a name for himself as a horse painter and was one of the most important animal portraitists in the kingdom at the time. The wealth of his family enabled Sydney Prior Hall to study at Oxford University and graduate with top marks, after which he was offered a job as an illustrator with the newly founded newspaper "The Graphic". Hall's work in particular, such as the very vivid depiction of the Franco-Prussian War from 1870 to 1871, was both to make him known throughout the country and to make the newspaper a great success.

Sydney Prior Hall's illustrations were especially appreciated for his attention to detail and dry humour, which made even seemingly trivial events relevant and worth seeing. His works often oscillated between documentary illustrations and caricatures. Hall's talent soon aroused the interest of the British Royal Court and in 1875 Hall was allowed to accompany the then Prince of Wales and later King Edward VII on his journey through the British Empire for almost eight months. During this journey, Hall produced works of watercolour and drawings of India, among other things, which were exhibited at South Kensington Palace after his return to England and enjoyed great popularity. Through his close contact with the Prince of Wales and his elitist education in Oxford, Hall quickly rose in the favour of the royal family both as an artist and as a person. He painted portraits of the King's daughters and accompanied other members of the Royal Family on journeys such as to Canada and on the RMS Ophir. Hall is also known for his documentation of parliamentary trials, where he depicted what were actually dry and boring events in a humorous and biting way.

Besides his famous sketches and illustrations, Hall is also known for his portraits and as a book illustrator. Because of his talent and attention to detail, he was not only allowed to create illustrations for "The Graphic", but also to portray numerous British executives. Sydney Prior Hall died in 1922 at the age of 80. © Meisterdrucke
