Fine Art/Artist Information


I have recently found the this oil (approx. 24 X 36 not including the frame) on canvas in Va. about 40 miles west of  Washington D.C..

It is signed B. Hilton. The signature and subject matter alone would seem to eliminate Barry Hilton.

I would appreciate any information you might have as to the identity of the artist and/or the time frame of his/her work.

I have included photos of the piece and the signature in separate questions as there does not seem to be a multiple image option.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Possibly the work of Bo Hilton, a British painter (born 1961) who prefers fairly bright, impressionist oils of seashores, harbors and nudes. This would be one of the largest of his works so I am immediately skeptical.  

I cannot see that you were successful in sending through any photos of your art, but if you'd like to send me some directly, you can find my email address at www dot cartwrightfineart dot com

Best of luck,

Fine Art
