He moved to London in 1902 and began printmaking in earnest, driven by the rise of the Art Deco period. Much like the key members of the Grosvenor School of Print & Modern Art, Hall Thorpe attended Heatherleys School of Art. He began printmaking at the end of WW1 and held his first one man show of his colour woodcuts in London in 1918.
Designed with the specific intention of providing bright, colourful decoration, Hall Thorpes hand-made prints were produced as a reaction against what he saw as the dull, laborious realism of so much of the decoration in peoples homes at the time. These simple yet highly distinctive hand-made works were immensely popular in their day and will remain a definitive statement of interior design between the two World Wars.
