"I am concerned in my work with the representation
of the human form by means of classical artistic anatomy. 
     "I believe that only a solid and practical understanding
of the skeletal framework and the muscle forms it supports
will enable me to interpret the model before me, and
to translate what I see into a work of art -- a work that
at minimum will celebrate the marvelous, infinitely
beautiful form that we humans are, and at maximum
will touch the viewer in an emotional way, nourishing them,
making them feel and be engaged in an aesthetic
experience that will transport them from the
ordinary to the sublime."

~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.

Philip Leslie Hale werd geboren in 1865
en stierf plotseling in 1931.
Hij was het 5 de kind van totaal 9 kinderen van
Edward Everett Hale en z’n vrouw Emily.
Van Hale’s vader mocht hij geen kunstopleiding gaan
doen als hij niet geslaagd was voor z’n Harvard examen.
Hij studeerde op de Museum School in 1883,
vervolgens op de New York Art Students 'League met
J. Alden Weir, en uiteindelijk in Parijs aan
de Academie Julian en de Ecole des Beaux Arts.

After exhibiting his work in Boston (at the Art Club),
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.

Na een expositie van zijn werk in Boston (op de Art Club),
Philadelphia (Pennsylvania Academy), New York
  (vereniging van Amerikaanse kunstenaars,
National Academy of Design),
en Chicago (Art Institute), ging Hale   in de herfst
van 1890weer naar Frankrijk en
In 1891 reisde hij naar Engeland
en het jaar erop vestigde hij zich in Boston.

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.

In die tijd bracht hij z’n zomers door in
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.

In 1899 exposeerde Hale achtentwintig schilderijen en
zeven pastels bij Durand-Ruel Galleries in New York,
de grootste dealers van impressionistische
schilderkunst in zowel Frankrijk als in Amerika.

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.

  Hij gaf  kunstgeschiedenis lessen aan de
Boston University, en doceerde aan de
Boston en het Metropolitan musea, 
gaf lessen aan de Academie Pennsylvania (1913-1928),
en schreef kritieken voor lokale kranten.
In 1913 publiceerde hij de eerste Amerikaan
tekst over Vermeer,  een kunstenaar die veel bewonderd
werd door Boston schilders.
Hij won vele prijzen en onderscheidingen.

~My wish for you~

24 of the works of Aimee Stewart
are featured in the film.
The Music on "My Wish for You"
was contributed by Annbjørg Lien

to everyone you know who would enjoy a break
from the stress of the day, to disappear in
a lovely daydream for a few minutes.

Silken threads, a fairy’s bed
The morning’s magic dew
Secret Glades,
Seasheel arrayed,
This is my wish for you!
Windows’d moons,
winter’s cocoon,
Springtime’s green debut
Journeys bright,
Compassions’s might,
This is my wish for you!
Flying ships and signing lips,
Emblazoned wild adieu,
Twilight’s gift,
enchantment’s kiss
This is my wish for you!
Tales explored,
gold bricks galore,
a light to guide you through
winds to race
Companioned grace
This is my wish for you!
Slumbers deep
a faithful leap,
a Magic carpet view,
hope in flight
rapture’s delight,
This is my wish for you!
Wishes made, secret parades,
a tale of love come true,
a moonbeam trone
a place called home,
This is my wish for you!
To sing you soft a lullaby
to sew the seams of lost goodbye’s
to light the way through your dark skies,
This is my wish for you!
To give you wings and to watch you fly
to silk your tears until they dry
to spin a tale that you might try
This is my wish for you!
Grief’s release
a field of peace
a space for solitude
followed bliss
balloons adrift
This is my wish for you!
Adventure’s shore
a sky of more
a life with joy imbued
all this score
you are and more
You are the wish come true
