This long awaited book on the well-known South Australian Colonial Painter, Mr Charles Hill is now finally available. The author has created an extensive archive of Charles Hill`s ancestors and descendants along with an extensive look at his early art education, career and his surprising attempt to open a hotel in Kensington. Through Mr Hill`s determination after his arrival in 1854 he established the S.A. School of Art, S.A. School of Design and most importantly the S.A. Society of Art. Many of his paintings now hang in the S.A. Art Gallery, Ayres House and the Whyalla Civic centre. Mr Hill is mostly famous for painting many of South Australia`s prominent historical events including the magnificent, ‘Reading the Proclamation,’ depicting the ceremony at Glenelg in 1836 that now hangs proudly in the Art Gallery of S.A.

The book consists of 106 pages, 24,260 words, 87 previously unpublished photographs and a further 10 photographs.
