William Henry Hilliard, born in Auburn, New York, in 1836, was a painter of realistic, tonal landscapes related to the Hudson River School. He studied in New York City prior to painting in England and Scotland, then studying with Lambinet in Paris, France. Until 1878, he was based in New York City, but moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Though he did paint in the West before traveling to Europe to study, he later became known for his New England landscapes, views of Maine, the Atlantic Coast, White Mountains and Franconia Mountains.

He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, New York City, from 1876 to 1888, and the Brooklyn Art Association, in New York, as well as many other national venues, winning prizes and medals. His last known address was Baltimore, Maryland. William Henry Hilliard died in Washington, D.C. in April 1905.
