This painting was done in 1972, late in life for Mr. Hill, who was born in England in 1881. Mr. Hill immigrated to the United States and worked for a brief period on the East Coast before moving back to England during WWI. He then returned to the US and settled in Dallas, Texas in 1920.

Mr. Hill expertise was in Georgian and English styles of architecture. Texas history, and Dallas history, and important US history must have had an influence on Mr Hill as he turned to the relaxing hobby of psychedelic painting.

After designing classic buildings, he seemed to love "modern" styles such as the wild atomic, googie, diner, and biomorphic style too as it became popular post-war. At the ripe old age of 96, Mr. Hill died in 1977.
