Title: Thomas Hill: The Grand View

Author(s): Marjorie Dakin Arkelian

"This retrospective exhibition, 'Thomas Hill: The Grand View,' provides an appropriate opportunity to reassess the significance of one of the most prolific painters of picturesque California scenes. This exhibition, within necessary limitations, traces Thomas Hill's stylistic development while documenting his excessive versatility and establishing his personal contribution to the tradition of landscape as subject in American art." "For Thomas Hill, the California landscape, and in particular Yosemite, provided an aesthetic vehicle for a set of formal visual inventions as a means of personal expression of his grand view." George W. Neubert, Curator of the Exhibition
