Rowland Hilder, OBE PRI RSMA (1905-1993)

A highly fluent watercolourist, Rowland Hilder became synonymous with the Kent countryside that he painted for much of his life. However, he was a wide-ranging painter and illustrator, who tackled cityscapes, marines and figure subjects with equal confidence and success.

The son of British parents, Rowland Hilder was born on 28 June 1905 at Great Neck, Long Island, New York. He was first educated in Morristown, New Jersey. Following the return of his family to England in 1915, he lived in New Cross, South London, and attended Aske’s Hatcham School. In 1921, he entered the etching class of Goldsmiths’ College School of Art, but soon fell under the spell of E J Sullivan, an influential teacher of illustration.
