Luce Artist Biography

Arthur Turnbull Hill studied with the noted landscape artist George Inness, who was a close friend of his father’s. Hill related that when Inness showed him one of his own paintings, the young artist was “so enthralled with the color and atmosphere of the picture, that I must have appeared stupid.” In 1922, Hill wrote an article describing his father’s relationship with George Inness. This was published by the Salmagundi Club, a New York sketch club and “gathering place” for artists that was established in 1871.
