  • About the artist
    George Smith of Chichester, a prolific painter of landscapes, was born in Chichester to a man who combined the trades of baker and cooper with the calling of a Baptist minister. His brothers, William and John, were also landscape painters; George often collaborated on works with his brother John. George Smith exhibited at the Society of Arts in London during the 1760s and early 1770s (he won prizes there in 1760, 1761 and 1763) and at the Royal Academy. His paintings were popular and many of them found a wider audience through the medium of engraving. Before he specialised in landscape painting, Smith painted still lifes; and in addition to practising as an artist, he was also a poet and a musician.
