About Thomas Hill

Immigrating from England in 1844, Thomas Hill came to America with his family as a youngster, and became one of America’s most famous 19th century landscape painter, especially of panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite. He also painted landscapes of the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park, where he was particularly fascinated by the geysers.

Hill studied art in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy, and his first intentions were to become a history painter. However, he changed to landscape when he spent some time in Europe, especially France among the Berbizon painters and in the studio of Paul Meyerheim.

During the 1870’s and 1880’s his work brought high prices, but diminished with the increasing popularity of modernism. In the latter half of the 20th century, his work was rediscovered, and he is now considered one of the major figures in American art.
