Venice

c.1880's

About

A Venetian depiction of Italian architecture, gondolas, bridge and distant campanile, with an emphasis on light and water, Oil on canvas measures 15 3/8 x 18 3/8, housed in elegant frame, measures 20 3/4 x 23 3/4 x 2 1/2. Weight is 7 1/4 lbs. A specialist in marine and landscape views, Henry Pember Smith was born in Waterford, Connecticut in 1854. Little is known about his early training or his career before 1877, when he set up a studio in New York City. It is generally assumed that he was self- taught. From 1877 on, Smith exhibited regularly at the National Academy of Design, although he never became a member. Smith also exhibited at the American Watercolor Society and the Artists' Fund. His landscapes are his best known works, particularly those of New England, Spain, Italy, England, New York State, and France. These also indicate his love of travel and some of his best known works are Venetian scenes. Working primarily in oils and watercolors, and using a tighter technique than the emerging impressionists of his time, Smith was a true realist. Around 1901, Smith moved to Asbury Park, New Jersey to seek relief from ill health and rheumatism. He died there in October, 1907. (Reference: Antiques & Fine Art)
