Charles-Jean Hallo dit ALO ( - )

The son of a military man, he spent his childhood in Dijon, where he attended the École des Beaux-Arts in that city, followed by the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He studied under Charles Cottet and Jacques-Émile Blanche before specialising in etching. From 1907, he exhibited at the annual Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. He served in the air force during the First World War as an observer-photographer. In 1920, he settled in Senlis where he founded the Musée de la Vénerie, among other things. His holidays spent in Brittany provided him with the inspiration for numerous compositions. His favourite themes were landscapes, aircraft and animals. He is best known for his work as a poster artist, which he signs ALO.
