Title

Rocklily Road


Artist

J J Hilder

Australia

23 Jul 1881 - Apr 1916


About

'Rocklily Road' is typical of the evocative watercolour landscapes that brought J J Hilder such acclaim during his short career (1907-1916). He made watercolours of understated, simple scenes with a distinctive delicacy and evocative tonlism that reveal a debt to Corot and Sydney Long.
