About The Artist:

John Hill was the son of a reverand and an apprentice with an apothecary. He earned a medical degree from Edinburgh, and made a good living preparing novel and sometimes questionable herbal and vegetal cures. He was a controversial figure and ran afoul of the Royal Society over his writings and criticisms. He became a prolific writer on a variety of subjects, was knighted by a Swedish monarch, and although he eventually became famous, he was sometimes ridiculed for some of his outlandish treatises. A full length biography of Sir John Hill by George Rousseau, released in 2012, has renewed public interest in this fascinating early Georgian character.
