Born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, Hendricks Hallett studied in Antwerp and Paris. Best known for marine scenes and shorescapes of Boston Harbor, he also painted in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and on Mount Desert Island in Maine.  Hallett worked outdoors, sketching with pencil, making color notes, and translated his sketches into oils in his studio.  He exhibited regularly at the Boston Art Club between 1877 and 1918.

Hallett was a member of the Boston Society of Watercolor Painters, as well as the Boston Art Club, and exhibited at the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Association, the Eastman Chase Gallery (Boston), Poland Spring Art Exhibitions, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.  His works are in the Brocton Public Library and Mystic Seaport Museum.
