Harry Pelling Gill

Harry Pelling Gill (9 March 1855 – 25 May 1916) was an English-born Australian artist and art teacher.

Gill was born at Brighton, England. He studied at the Brighton School of Art and at South Kensington where he won a scholarship. In 1882 he was appointed master of the school of design at Adelaide and held this position for 27 years. He published "The Straight and Crooked Paths of Studentship" in 1894. He was appointed honorary curator of the art gallery of South Australia, and in 1899 visited Europe where, with the assistance of a committee, he spent £10,000 on works of art. It was generally agreed that very good judgment had been shown in making these purchases. Gill was for some time president of the South Australian Society of Arts, and in 1909 was appointed principal and examiner of the Adelaide School of Art. He resigned this position on 1 July 1915 on account of ill health, and died on 25 May 1916 while on a voyage to England. Gill had a good reputation as a teacher and lecturer. An oil and three of his water-colours are in the art gallery at Adelaide. He married and was survived by his wife and two sons.Dictionary of Australian Biography|First=Harry Pelling|Last=Gill|Link=http://gutenberg.net.au/dictbiog/0-dict-biogG.html#gill1|accessdate=2008-10-06] [Australian Dictionary of Biography
