~Philip Leslie Hale~

self portrait .
Philip Leslie Hale was born 1865 and died suddenly
in 1931. He was the fifth of nine children born to
Edward Everett Hale and his wife Emily.
His siblings included painter Ellen Day Hale and
architect Herbert Dudley Hale. After Roxbury
Latin School, Hale’s father insisted that he pass the
Harvard entrance examinations before he could begin
art training. He studied at the Museum School in 1883,
then at the New York Art Students’ League with
J. Alden Weir, and finally in Paris at the Académie Julian
and the Ecole des Beaux Arts; he then visited Spain to see
the works of Velázquez before returning to New York.

Philadelphia (Pennsylvania Academy), New York
(society of American Artists, National Academy of Design),
and Chicago (Art Institute), Hale went again to France
in the fall of 1890. In 1891 he traveled to England
and the following year settled in Boston,
becoming an instructor of antique drawing at the
Museum School in 1893.

About the same time,
he began to spend his summers in Giverny (France),
with his friend Theodore Butler, Monet’s son-in-law,
and began a demanding exhibition schedule that he
would maintain throughout his career.

Giverny (Frankrijk) waar hij bevriend werd met
de schoonzoon van Monet, Theodore Butler.

In 1899 Hale exhibited twenty-eight paintings and
seven pastels at Durand-Ruel Galleries in New York,
the major dealers of Impressionist painting in both
France and America. The pictures were mainly the results
of his Rhode Island summers’ work—critics gave mixed
reviews, finding the post-impressionist color and
dissolution of form bold and rather extreme.

Philip Hale’s reputation would come to rest more upon
his merits as a teacher than upon his own painting.
Aside from instruction in antique and life drawing and
artistic anatomy at the Museum School (1893-1931),
he taught art history classes at Boston University,
lectured at the Boston and the Metropolitan museums,
gave studio classes at the Pennsylvania Academy (1913-1928),
and wrote critical reviews for local papers.
In 1913 he published the first American text on Vermeer,
a lengthy study on the life and work of an artist much admired
by Boston painters. That same year Hale exhibited two
pictures in the Armory show.
He won many prizes and awards, continuing to
show his works nationwide, and served on the jury
of the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915.
He remained an active figure on the Boston
art scene throughout the 1920s.

werd door Boston schilders.
Hij won vele prijzen en onderscheidingen.

Love his use of colours, very influenced by Impressionism I would guess.

Sommige vaders blijven toch de talenten van hun zoons onderschatten. Je hoort het maar al te vaak van mensen die hun brood in de kunst willen verdienen, dat ze door hun coservatieve ouders worden dwarsgezeten. Maar de echte doordouwers op dat gebied breken door. Hij is er daar één van. Prachtige afbeeldingen van een ongetwijfeld getalenteerde man.
Fijne dag verder!
