About Hilda:

Hilda Neily belongs to the prestigious community of painters living and working in Provincetown, Massachusetts. As a Plein Air Impressionist artist, Neily works outside on landscapes and paints still life inside in north light. Primarily a landscape, seascape and still-life painter, Neily’s focus is on the changing light conditions and the expression of these changes in color. Plein Air Impressionist painting is marked by its primary emphasis on how light conditions affect the eye's perception of color.

Born in Vermont and a resident of Provincetown since 1968, Neily studied various theories of painting before developing a strong interest in Plein Air Impressionist painting. This interest led her to study at the Cape School of Art in Provincetown with Henry Hensche beginning in 1974.

Henry Hensche, master Impressionist, served as assistant to Charles Hawthorne, founder of the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899. Neily Studied with Hensche for 15 years. Neily today is a master painter in her own right, and is considered to be one of the Cape School's most adept practitioners.

Neily's paintings are included in many private, corporate and museum collections throughout the United States and abroad.
