This biography from the Archives of AskART:
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."

Biography from Braarud Fine Art:
Born in Wolverhampton, England in 1843, Edward Hill was the ninth of ten children. Though ultimately less well known than his older brother Thomas Hill (1829-1908), Edward was a productive painter in oil and watercolor for more than sixty years, producing images of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, southern genre scenes, still-life paintings, portraits, American Indian pictures, and western views.

His paintings are widely collected and are represented in museums as diverse as the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and the Denver Art Museum.

The Hill family moved to Taunton, Massachusetts less than a year after Edward's birth. With his brother Thomas, Edward worked as a furniture painter with firms in Massachusetts for several years, and he shared Thomas' studio in San Francisco in 1862-63 and again in 1872. Edward would be a constant traveler throughout his long career, shuttling for various lengths of time not only between New England and California, but to regions from the American South to the Pacific Northwest.

By the early 1880s Hill's financial success and artistic reputation were well established, largely on the strength of his paintings of the White Mountains. Ever restless and in search of new imagery, however, he also lived and worked at times in Colorado, Utah, and elsewhere in the Southwest throughout the last two decades of the century and the first decade of the next. From 1911 to his death in 1923, the artist lived and painted primarily in the Pacific Northwest.

Hill's paintings are diverse in character, in response both to the changing landscapes he experienced and to the changing influences of the artistic times. Lighter, brighter, and slightly more impressionistic in his later career, his canvases remained topographically accurate, and he was unusually receptive among the landscape painters of his day to inclusion of specific human activities in his work.
