Description Born in Wolverhampton, England on Dec. 9, 1843. Hill was brought to the U.S. by his family in 1844 and settled in Taunton, MA. vHis art career was spent mainly in Boston and the New Hampshire towns of Lancaster, Littlejohn, and Nashua.

A peripatetic artist, he was constantly on the go. He made trips to San Francicso (1862, 1872 and 1892), Portland (1881), Denver (1888, 1902), and Seattle (1916). While in San Francisco, he shared a studio with his brother Thomas and painted many landscapes of California. He went with his brother to the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893. Hill was artist-in-residence at the Flume House in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in 1894. During 1920-21 he had a studio in Los Angeles. The town of Hood River, OR served as a base of operations from 1911 until his death on Aug. 27, 1923.

He signed his paintings "E. Hill" or Edward Hill." His are often confused with those of his nephew Edward Rufus Hill who signed his works "E. R. Hill."
