A folk-cultural exploration of the life and work of barn star artist Milton J. Hill (1887-1972) of Virginville, Berks Co., Pa. This book traces his roots in rural Pennsylvania Dutch family life, describes his distinctive and influential folk artistry, its evolution and influence on other folk artists, and how, later in life, his art reached a broader national audience. This book is a treasure that will have you never look at a barn star in the same way again. (144pp. color illus. hardcover. PA German Cult. Heritage Ctr., 2020.)
