Grassy Hill depicts the area in Lyme where DuMond bought a house in 1906. Artist Allen B. Talcott had first introduced him to the crowd at Florence Griswold's house, but it was the close friendship DuMond formed there with Willard Metcalf that had the most profound impact on his work. the Autumnal radiance and tightly controlled strokes in Grassh Hill echo Metcalf's artistic experiments in the earlier pastel Lyme Hillside.

Assisted by Will Howe Foote, DuMond came to townin 1902 as the Director of the Lyme Summer School of Art sponsored by the Art Students League of New York. Completed over three decades after his arriva, Grassy Hill affirms the Impressionist artistic legacty of the colony, which DuMond helped perpetuate through his teaching at the "School of Lyme".
