Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This drawing in pastel and two accompanying works (WAM 37.2584 and WAM 37.2585) in pencil and gouache were made by the artist in preparation for a painting showing a regatta held on the Grand Canal in May, 1902. Smith was born on St. Paul Street, Baltimore. He trained initially as an engineer but later taught himself to paint in watercolors. He traveled extensively, producing watercolors which were reproduced in deluxe "travel books," such as "Gondola Days" (1897) and "The Venice of To-Day" (1897) as well as various magazines. He was also the author of many popular books.
