This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Camden, South Carolina, Delancey Gill traveled and sketched extensively in Indian Territory.

He had little formal education, and in 1887 became assistant draftsman in the supervising Architect's office for the United States Government.  The artist- scientist, William Henry Holmes, noted Gill's artistic ability and recommended him for illustration work with the US Geological Survey and the Bureau of Ethnology.  In this job, he sketched in Indian Territory, the Arizona desert, and the upper Yellowstone River Valley.

Three of his Arizona pueblo paintings, dated 1888, are in the Smithsonian collection. He later taught art at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC.  He was the husband of painter, illustrator Mary Wright Gill and the father of artist Minna Partridge Gill.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information, submitted June 2002, is from Webster Delancey, grandson of the artist:

Mr. Gill spent many years in charge of the Illustrations Division of the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian, and in such capacity took or processed several thousand photos of Native Americans, and created thousands of illustrations in Annual Reports of the Bureau, from the late 1800's through the late 1920's.

A series of his pen and ink sketches of 'urban renewal' in Washington D.C. in the late 1880's -- which ran in the Washington Star newspaper -- are now in the Washington Historical Museum. His landscape oil paintings sold well in galleries in New York, Pittsburgh and other cities, and hang in the Cosmos Club, the National Gallery of Art in D.C., and many private homes.
