Watercolor, image size 9 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches, 1855. Hill started his career as an aquatint engraver in his father's studio before moving on to watercolors and landscape painting. At the age of 21 he was entered into the National Academy of Design. In this beautiful landscape notice his use of stippling and tiny brushstroke work that create the layers of color, shadow and light. Later in life he was one of the founding members of the Society for the Advancement of Truth in Art. His work is found in the Brooklyn Museum, the Hood Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
