Biography from Heritage Auctions (
Lee N. Smith III moved to Dallas from New Orleans when he was six.  He had no formal art training, but started to paint in 1974 and had his first one man exhibition at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1979.  In 1984, he was one of less than thirty artists chosen to represent the United States at the Venice Biennale.

Smith quickly became acclaimed for paintings that draw from his childhood memories, often set in surreal suburban landscapes.  The painting Morning Route, painted the year after he was so well received in Venice, is a classic example of his work from this period.  It uses formal characteristics, like vivid color and composition, to enhance the dream-like mood of the painting, contributing to the sense of nostalgia invoked by a classic American archetype-the paperboy.

Smith has had major exhibitions at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Dallas Contemporary. 

His works can be found in the collections of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Tyler Museum of Art.
