This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Payette, Idaho, Clinton Hill became a painter in New York City of abstract color compositions with mystical, atmospheric* qualities.  He also did collage*, constructions*, hand-made paper* works, and woodblock* prints.

He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1947, attended the Brooklyn Museum Art School from 1949 to 1951, earning a degree.  He then spent two years in Europe, and in Paris, 1951, was enrolled at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere*, and Florence at the Istituto de Art Statale. 

In 1956, he went to India on a Fulbright Grant. There the exposure to metaphysical thinking deeply influenced his art as did his occasional working as an assistant to Mark Rothko, famous Abstract Expressionist*.

Of Hill's artwork, Max Ernst said: "'The Painting itself is beautiful enough in itself,' and no better words can describe the art of Clinton Hill...Its brilliant color, abundant energy, varying rhythms, and constant revision of form, attract, involve, and, most of all, satisfy our senses and need for aesthetic experience."
