Description
Gift of Warren Howell, 1971. ​A sale catalog of Fifth Avenue Art Galleries​ (New York) for Feb. 11-13, 1903, lists a pair of Hill paintings on "two panels from giant trees of California", "The Grizzly and the Neowna [sic]," which were from "the Fields' collection." Several other lots are noted as from the collection of Justice Stephen Field, including another by Hill. (See: Catalogue of high-class oil paintings by American and European artists. Lot 84. https://archive.org/details/b1491310 ; visited December 2017.) There is no firm evidence linking the Bancroft Library panels to the items in this sale.
