"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. Elected associate of the National Academy, 1870. Member of the American Art Union. Has devoted himself almost exclusively to the painting of winter scenes. " Mr. Smith paints conscientiously, winter trees and snow, a farmer's cozy home, the calm, warm glow of a winter sky and clouds, truly and faithfully, according 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.
