George Hawley Hallowell (1871-1926) was born in Boston,MA. 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. He 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.
