Hal Singer (1919-2003), artist in oils and watercolors, painted in a style he referred to as soft-focus realism. Recurring subjects included carousels, figures in moments of quiet contemplation, and life along the Atlantic coast. Singer said of his work that he did his best to show "the forces of natural growth, spaciousness, and quiet solitude."

Singer first started painting as a teen and later studied at New York University and the Art Students League. In 1940 he enlisted in the military, serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Following the service, Singer worked as a graphic artist before devoting his life to painting full-time in 1962.
