Painter of portraits and decorative figure compositions. Son of Charles Hallé, the musician. Pupil of Baron Marochetti and L. von Mottez. Exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1866-82, mostly portraits; in 1877 he joined the group of artists of the 'Secession' at the newly-founded Grosvenor Gallery. After 1887 he was also involved with the New Gallery. A close friend of Sir Edward Burne-Jones, George Frederick Watts, Herkomer and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Hallé was more important as an organiser; his own paintings are inspired the aesthetic style of Burne-Jones. After the 1880s he exhibited entirely at the Grosvenor Gallery and the New Gallery.
