he was described as THE TURNER OF HIS GENERATION, – ROWLAND HILDER, 1905 – 1993. you probably see the similarity between HILDER’S landscapes and the backgrounds in disney’s 101 DALMATIANS, together with RONALD SEARLE his artwork was used for inspiration. HILDER was born in long island in the US, but returned with his parents in 1915 to england, where he lived most of his life in a kentish country village. he illustrated numerous books and was a professor at goldsmith’s college school of art. someone described his style and technique as so recognisable that there are parts of England which, in tribute to his skill, seem to have grown physically like his paintings. he shares with JOHN CONSTABLE the distinction of having seen an entire region of England identified with his name and art. The description ROWLAND HILDER COUNTRY evokes a landscape as distinctive as CONSTABLE’S COUNTRY along the Suffolk Stour. That is as generous a tribute as any man could wish.

The bgs for 101 Dalmatians are definitely in there. There’s also a bit of Eyvind Earle with the fanning trees and the grisly barks. Thanks for showing Hilder’s art.

wow, these are beautiful, thanks for the heads-up!

actually, i find these to be interesting reference for painting digitally: its rather clear to see in most places where he worked transparently, where he used opaque paint, and the way he is drybrushing is very much like you can add texture with custom brushes in photoshop or paper textures in painter. he can teach a lot about how much and where to use these.

Stunning, thanks for reminding about his work Hans. The countryside in his paintings is very similar to where I am living in Surrey.
