Charles Edward Hallé was a painter of historical scenes, genre scenes, and portraits. He was the son of Sir Charles Halle, the German-born pianist and orchestra conductor, who emigrated to England during the revolution of 1848. When he entered the School of the Royal Academy in London Charles Edward Hallé first professors were Richard Doyle and Carlo Marochetti.
At seventeen years old Charles Edward Hallé traveled to France and studied with Victor Mottez, a student of Ingres. From France he traveled to Italy, to learn more about the Neo-Classicism tradition in Rome.
Upon his return to London in 1866, he exhibited four paintings at the Royal Academy in London that he had painted in Rome after that left for Venice. This time he studied the techniques of the Venetian Masters and attempted to paint in their style. He then returned to England and settled in London. In 1877 with J. Comyns Carr, he assisted Lord Coutts Lindsay in the creation of the Grosvenor Gallery. Ten years later, along with with the Pre-Raphaelite Burne-Jones, he established another art gallery in London, the New Gallery and used these two galleries to frequently exhibit his oil paintings. Despite having been born only two years before the establishing of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood movement, stylistically Charles Edward Hallé was aligned with the aesthetic of that group.
