评论: One of the major American still life artists of the second half of the 19th century, he was a follower of Ruskinian philosophy (as were his father, John William Hill, and his grandfather, John Hill). He was also an accomplished landscape painter. In 1867 he published Sketches from Nature." Hill also made a trip West in 1868, creating sketches, watercolors, and gouaches of scenes in Nevada, Utah, and Northern California. The following year he settled in Lake George, NY, and there turned his Western studies into large oil paintings. In 1888 he prepared An Artist's Memorial to honor his father, illustrating it with his own etchings after his father's paintings.
