Biography from Pierce Galleries, Inc.:
George Hawley Hallowell (American, 1871-1926):

George Hawley Hallowell was born December 5, 1871 in Boston, where he died of cancer March 26, 1926. He spent his professional life in Boston and studied with Edmund C. Tarbell and Frank W. Benson at Boston's Museum School, with H. Warren of Rotch in Boston and in Paris (1906, where he copied the Old Masters).

Hallowell was known as a "Tarbellite" but his style and unusually ephemeral manner of fusing color hues and tones into blurry edged atmospheric landscapes was unique and because of this he is considered an avantgarde member of the Boston school.

Hallowell was a member of the St. Botolph Club (Boston), the Boston Society of Water Color Painters, the Aquarellists and the N.Y. Water Color Club. He painted as many watercolors as he did oils and is best known for his scenes of northern forests, logging camps and melancholy landscapes in American, Canada and Italy. He also made stained glass windows and altar pieces in glass, wood and metals.

Awards include: gold medal, St. Louis Exposition (1904); gold medal for watercolor painting, Pan-Pacific Exposition (1915, San Francisco) and the Beal Prize, N.Y. Water Color Club (1904).

Solo exhibitions: St. Botolph Club (Boston 1913, 1927, 1928 and Memorial Exhibition, April 1925); Casson Gallery (1918); Boston City Club; Christopher Huntington Gallery (ME, 1971).
