American impressionist painter Philip Hale was the husband of Lilian Westcott Hale, whom he married in 1902. Their daughter, Nancy (1909-88), went on to become a noted writer and editor. The couple was married by Hale's famous father, the Reverend Edward Everett Hale, who was known as an author, historian, and minister, and belonged to one of Boston’s most distinguished families. His sister Ellen Day Hale also became a well-known impressionist painter.
Philip Hale studied at the School of Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and later for five years in Paris. He began painting and drawing as a child and later produced drawings in silver-point, sanguine, and pastel, all of which contributed to his reputation as the “Boston Ingres.” He also worked as a guest teacher at Boston University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He died in Boston in February 1931 following an emergency appendectomy and his works were exhibited posthumously in the Art Competitions at Los Angeles in 1932.
