Roger Hallett is best known for the panoramas he has painted of Bath, of the Falkland Islands and lately of his home town since 1991, Salies-de-Béarn at the foot of the French Pyrenees. He has also painted in Bordeaux, Gibraltar and Lourdes and made his mark as a sculptor. Yet to meet the artist behind the paintings, we now have Two Left Boots. From over his shoulder we learn how he discovered photography in the Intelligence Corps working undercover in Trieste, of the survivor from the Bridge over the River Kwai who inspired him in his teaching days, and of the great and the good who have sat for his portraits. Roger Hallett has painted himself into a panorama, allowing us to share the memories of an artist old enough to remember the Second World War, but contemporary enough to report on the Indochina of today.
