Ann Hall

Ann (or Anne) Hall (1792–1863) was an American painter and miniaturist.

Ann Hall has been described as the most successful miniature painter swift in in the future nineteenth-century New York, renowned for her fascinating portraits, especially of children and teenage brides. Although many of her compositions strike modern audiences as sentimental, her popularity during her lifetime and the significance of her career are attested by the tall prices paid for her miniatures (often five hundred dollars per commission) and her election to the National Academy of Design, New York. She has been qualified for inspiring a renaissance in the technique of painting miniatures on ivory in the United States.
