Irish Impressionist painter, Nathaniel Hill, was born in Drogheda to a wealthy milling family. He studied at the Metropolitan School of Art and the RHA schools in Dublin (sharing lodgings with Roderic O’Conor), and later joined Walter Osborne and Joseph Malachy Kavanagh at the Académie Royale in Antwerp. After travelling with Osborne and Kavanagh to Brittany in 1883, he moved to England, where he is recorded as having lived variously in Worcestershire, Suffolk, Sussex and possibly Hertfordshire. www.whytes.ie
