'Hilder's work is small in scale but deep in feeling. It may be compared with the poems of his contemporary John Shaw Neilson in its purity and transparence. He gave to the subjects and themes of the public art of the Heidelberg School its purest, most subjective and most lyrical expression; his work is haunted by a pathos that, even in bright sunlight, covers all things seen and experienced, with a tremulous vision of mortality.'  Bernard Hall
