Rowland Hilder, marine artist

[ad name=”intheboatshed-post”]


Untitled watercolour by Rowland Hilder

As someone who lives in the Low Weald of Kent, I think of Rowland Hilder as a painter of landscapes that look as if they portray the fields around our house. But I’ve recently come to realise that Hilder was also an accomplished marine artist. Click on this link to Baron Fine Art Gallery to see some more examples.

  1. yes i am trying to find out more about rowland hilder i was lucky enough to come across one here in ms. it is of a bridgeover a stream with a church with a tall steeple with trees and more buildings around it would love to know more about it.

    thank you


  2. Hi Nancy, your print sounds very much like the painting of Aylesford Bridge on the R. Medway in Kent. A very good Biography was published in 1978 by the Antique Collectors Club, I have the second edition published in 1987. It was by John Lewis and the ref is ISBN 1 85149 050 7 – heavily illustrated I recommend it for more background if you can find a copy.



  3. I have a print by the above artist. It was brought in 1979 and is call CLEY-NEXT-TO-THE-SEA, TOWER MILL NORFOLK. can you tell me anything about this print, as my as turned shades of blue and I can't remember if this is how it was.

  4. I am trying to find out information about a water color I have. It has Hilder ‘191 in the lower right cornor. On the back in pencil is written “The Lighthouse Key West” It has blues and greens and three colored people on the left.

    Any ideas, anyone?

  5. I bought an oil painting 1977 signed by Rowland Hilder of Aylesford bridge and church .Is this an original? would be interested to your comments
