This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Andrew Hill was known as an accomplished landscape painter and nature conservationist. Born in Porter County, Indiana in 1853, he journeyed to California through the Isthmus of Panama with his family in 1867, eventually settling in San Jose. Hill studied at Santa Clara College before deciding to move to San Francisco to study art. In San Francisco Hill attended the School of Design and also took private lessons with Louis Lussier and Virgilio Tojetti. Hill and Tojetti opened a portrait studio together in Oakland, California, in 1876 and in San Jose in 1878.

He exhibited his landscapes and historical California scenes at the Mechanics' Institute (1876), the California State Fair (1877), and at the St. Louis World's Fair (1904). In 1892 he became involved with photography and formed with photographer Sydney Yard a business in San Jose that lasted three years. In the later part of his life, Hill became interested in the conservation of California's redwood forests. He devoted his time in an effort to preserve their natural beauty and was remembered by the community in 1923 with a monument dedicated to him in the California State Redwood Park in Big Basin. Andrew Putnam died in Pacific Grove, California in 1922.
