Jacob Getlar Smith, a distinguished member of the National Advisory Council since 1955, passed from this life on October 28th, 1958. Nationally renowned for his paintings and scholarly writings about art and artists, as contributing editor and feature writer for American Artist Magazine, he also taught art in art schools, colleges and art associations throughout the United States and Mexico.

His early studies were at the National Academy, New York, followed by travel and study in Europe and North Africa in 1926. After winning the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1930, he spent the year painting in Southern France. He also won the coveted $750.00 Logan Prize in oil painting at the Art Institute of Chicago.

His paintings hang in the permanent collections of many art museums, public institutions, and private collections. The United States Treasury Department commissioned him to paint murals in the post offices of Nyack, New York and Salisbury, Maryland. His book "Watercolor for the Beginner" won wide acclaim.
