John Hassall - Part 12


In 1900, Hassall opened his own New Art School and School of Poster Design in Kensington, with the help of his former teacher Van Havermaet; he numbered Bert Thomas, H M Bateman and Harry Rountree among his students. In 1908, the school amalgamated with Frank Brangwyn’s London School, but was closed at the outbreak of the First World War. In the post war period, he ran the very successful John Hassall Correspondence School.

For more information about John Hassall see part 1, and for earlier works, see parts 1 - 11 also.

This is part 12 of of a 12-part series on the works of John Hassall

Note: I was unable to find dates for the remainder of this series.

Write Away Postcards:

Dear - I am very much better today, almost able to sit up.

Dear - I will see you under the clock at.

Dear - It won't be long now

Dear - So sorry I was out

Dear, I am in rather a fix

Do you think you'll be in

How do you like this portrait of you True Love?
P.S. Don't Keep me in suspense

How do you like this?
P.S. Come early and bring music

I am dropping you a line

I am leaving this place

Now that I'm feeling well again.

If you are passing this way tomorrow.

I've been kept fearfully busy

I've been feeling a bit off colour lately

P.S. Is it a swallow-tail affair?

So sorry you didn't turn up

Dear - I couldn't keep our appointment.

So sorry I missed you
