This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Richard Clarke Hare was a painter best known for his watercolor scenes of the Massachusetts seashore.  In the 1930s, he was part of the Provincetown, Massachusetts art scene.  He was from a family of artists.  His brother, John Hare, was a painter, as was his uncle Knowles Hare, a famous engraver.

One of the locations that Richard Hare enjoyed painting was Lake Ozonia, a small lake in the Adirondacks, where he first visited in the 1920s.  He married a local girl, Nellie Stark, and they lived at Ozonia, the town on the Lake named for the purity of its air, during the summers and early fall because she was more comfortable there than New York City.  Their courtship became part of the lore of Ozonia, and it was said they "were stars at doing the Charleston, she with her dark bobbed hair and flashing brown eyes and he with his lanky figure."  She died at age 38, and he remarried and lived to age sixty-three.

Mason Smith, "Lake Ozonia: A Camp Memoir", Adirondack Life, April 2006, pp. 46-53

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Peter Bennett:

"R.C. Hare was one of my mother's (Elizabeth Hare Bennett) brothers, the other being John C. Hare, another artist in your listing, and a grand-nephew of J. Knowles Hare (engraver; 1882-1947).   He resided in Brooklyn, New York, and married Marjorie (not certain of last name).  His mother was Aimee Mae Phillips Hare, and his father was Arthur Clark Hare, both of Brooklyn.

'Uncle Dick' had three children with 'Aunt Marge'; Richard, Robert, and Barbara. A number of his works are within the family, as are those of his brother John, (as well as Knowles, including a number of his original etched copper plates).

Essentially a part-time artist (as opposed to John, who painted for a living), among other things, Richard was art director for Remington Rand in New York City in the '50s.
