Frederick James Gill
Frederick James Gill was born in May of 1906 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Gill's media includes acrylics and watercolors.
Not only is Gill a painter, having studied at the Pennsylvania Museum School of Art, the University of Pennsylvania and The Tyler School of Art, but he is also an avid jazz saxophonist.
This strong collegiate bond was evidenced also in his love for teaching, doing so from 1955 until 1974. Most of Gill's paintings were influenced by his love of jazz, from his abstract compositions to his improvisations with flowers, to his theories on landscapes, Frederick Gill was an artist who chose to play it by ear.
