Biography of Alo (Charles Hallo) (1884-1969)

Hallo was born in Paris in 1882, the son of the painter Vernon-Bellecourt. Influenced by his artistic father, young Charles was groomed as an artist and educated in lithography at the printing houses V. Prost, J.E. Blanche and Ch. Cottet. ALO continued his studies, which eventually served him well as he earned a scholarship for his skill in 1911. The scholarship enabled him to study and travel throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. During his career, ALO created over 100 posters for railway and marine lines, which were exhibited at travel shows and art exhibitions throughout the US and Europe during the early and mid-twenties. Today, the work of Charles-Jean Hallo may be seen in museums and galleries throughout the world.
