"A.N.A., New York. b. Glasgow, Scotland, 1835. Came to America at an early age and studied with George H. Boughton, in Albany, N.Y. Went to New York City in 1862. Has devoted himself almost exclusively to the painting of winter scenes. " Mr. Smith paints, conscientiously, winter trees and snow, a farmer's cosy home, the calm, warm glow of a winter sky and clouds, truly and faithfully, accordingly to his inspiration. his art, as far as style is concerned, is the art which conceals art, an individuality of thought and expression by which we recognize and sympathize with a fresh local inspiration from nature. - N.Y. Evening Post." [P. 51.]
