Description Along the Wharf A Landscape Oil Painting by F. Hutton Shill.

This sea side oil painting on canvas measures 32" x 36". Framed the painting measures 42" x 48".

Original title found on inscription on the back.

F. Hutton Shill was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 7, 1872.

In addition to studying at the Western Art Association in Omaha, Shill studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1885 to mid-1899 and then again from mid-1903 to mid-1904 under Thomas Anshutz, William Merritt Chase, Hugh Breckenridge, and Cecilia Beaux.

In 1903 the Academy of Fine Arts awarded Shill the prestigious Cresson Traveling Scholarship which enabled him to study abroad for a year.

However, on October 12, 1899, in between his sessions at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Shill married Leora Belle Markham in Philadelphia.

Together they lived in Holly Beach, New Jersey where Shill painted and taught a landscape school for three years. Shill also painted in Port Norris along the Maurice River at this time.

After having three children with his wife and having received the Cresson Traveling Scholarship, Shill traveled to Cornwall, England on his own in 1904.

During this period, his wife and children moved back to Omaha to stay with Shill's parents, while he painted and taught life classes in St. Ives.

By 1906, Shill returned to New Jersey, living in Camden with his family. He continued to paint and exhibit, eventually earning a second award in the spring of 1907.

This allowed him to take his entire family to Cornwall from June of 1907 to May of 1910.

After returning to Philadelphia from their three year stay in Cornwall, the Shills moved to Arkansas, where Shill's mother and sister newly resided.

In Arkansas Shill farmed and continued to paint, leading to a position as instructor at the Academy of Fine Arts, which was first erected in 1924 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

The Academy later became the art department for the University of Arkansas. Shill continued his teaching role in the 1930s, where he taught at the Louisiana Academy of Fine Arts.
