Derek Hill
Derek Hill travelled extensively throughout his life. He was particularly drawn to Italy, and was invited by the eminent art historian Bernard Berenson to stay at Villa I Tatti outside Florence during the winter months of the early 1950s. Hill's appointment as Art Director at the British School at Rome in 1953, enabled him to prolong his stay in Italy and to paint the Italian landscape. Corbignano is a small town in the hills surrounding Florence. Ann Jones
