Robert Hills (b Islington [now in London], 26 June 1769; d London, 14 May 1844). English painter and etcher. After taking drawing-lessons from John Alexander Gresse (1740-94), he enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools, London, in 1788. Village and rural scenes, and in particular studies of animals, occupied him throughout his working life; his favourite subjects were cattle, sheep, donkeys, pigs and above all deer, which he stalked for the purpose of sketching. As well as making plein-air drawings, Hills carried out careful anatomical studies of animal bones and joints. Between 1798 and 1815 he issued an extensive series of Etchings of Quadrupeds; the British Museum holds the artist's collection of his own etchings, which number over a thousand. He worked mostly in watercolour ( at the Fitzwilliam )but also occasionally in oils.
These are from 1797-1816 from his etchings of quadrapeds released as folio and as books in 11 parts in 3 volumes Vol I: Cattle: 200 figures on 105 plates. Dogs: 55 figures on 25 plates. Pigs: 36 figures on 16 plates. Vol II: Sheep: 100 figures on 44 plates. Asses & Mules: 79 figures on 45 plates. Cattle in groups: 95 figures on 54 plates.

Philips Wouwerman/ Wouwermann (1619 - Haarlem - 1668) :Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. Wouwerman favored his hunting scenes. £105 inc delivery loss base left
