Housed at the University of Puget Sound, this collection of paintings, sketches, and papers pays tribute to landscape painter Abby Williams Hill (1861-1943) who beautifully captured the American West at the turn of the 20th century. Perhaps best known for her commissioned works for the Great Northern and Northern Pacific railroads, her paintings were exhibited at the St. Louis World’s fair in 1904 and the Lewis and Clark Exposition in Portland in 1905. Visitors unfamiliar with Hill’s work should start with her Biography, then make their way to Featured Searches where they will find seven thematic sections, including National Parks, Portraits, and California. Each item in the collection is accompanied by a detailed description and a handy zoom feature allows for a variety of viewing perspectives. An exemplary digital collection, all items may be shared through a variety of platforms or saved to favorites for return visits.
