Adrian Keith Graham Hill (1895-1977) was educated at Dulwich College, and studied art at the St John’s Wood School of Art and at the Royal College of Art. During World War One he was appointed an official war artist; many of his paintings and sketches of the Western Front are now in the collection of the Imperial War Museum.
After the war, he taught at Hornsey School of Art and Westminster School of Art. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, New English Art Club, Royal Society of British Artists, Paris Salon and elsewhere. His works are in many municipal galleries, including Bradford, Derby, Worthing, Brighton & Hove and Leicester. In 1938, after convalescing from tuberculosis, he was invited to teach drawing and painting to the other patients, many being the first injured soldiers returning from the war.
Hill is credited with coining the term 'Art Therapy' in 1942, and in 1945 he published his ideas in the book ‘Art Versus Illness’. He later became president of the British Association of Art Therapists. He wrote many books on painting theory and techniques, and presented a BBC children’s television series called Sketch Club.
