This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted June 2004, is from Licia Babb who became interested in
George Garner Phipps through a friend's painting, a wedding gift, of a steam ship on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. "It was a wedding present to her parents and my friend is 82 years old so the painting is pretty old. It's a long painting over 2 ft. long and about 1 foot high."

Sources are several museums in Newton Highlands, Massachusetts, home town of the artist.

His house at 1193 Walnut is no longer there. I believe he was the minister at the Congregational Church in Newton Highlands and am awaiting a response from the church.

His parents were William Phipps and Mary Partridge, Reverend George Gardner Phipps was born December 11, 1838 in Franklin, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. He died sometime after 1925 in Newton Highlands, Massachusetts. His wife was Kathleen Maria Carruth, whome he married on September 12, 1865 at Philipston in, Worcester County, Massachusetts.

Phipps graduated from Amherst College with a B.A. degree and from Andover Theological Seminary in 1865. He was ordained as a minister on January 23, 1867 and served a parish in Wellesley from 1868-78 and in Newton Highlands from 1878-90.

He did watercolor painting and also wrote articles for the local newspapers and for religious periodicals. He and his wife had no children and lived at 1193 Walnut Street in Newton Highlands.

The following is in part a quotation from the memoirs of Edith Cobb Allen who knew Phipps well:

"George Phipps was a bouncy, alert, smiling little man; his wife was a large, expansive, capable woman who loved him devotedly...He was truly a pastor, in every sense of the word...He was able to actively use his sensitive talent for water-color painting; he captured many lovely scenes of the wooded hills of Newton, and of the unmatchable bends of the dear Charles River. His wedding gift to me was an especially-loved bend of the Charles, above Newton Upper Falls...I can see him now, a jaunty little figure, walking along the shaded side-walk of Lincoln St., Newton Highlands, the portfolio of water colors under his arm; he either sold of gave them - it seems to make little difference to him, just so they gave pleasure. that is my memory of dear George Phipps - always eager to give pleasure."
