Known as a painter of Civil War marine battle scenes, Xanthus Smith sold his first paintings at age fifteen.  Two years later he exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and by the start of the Civil War, he was an established painter.  His signature paintings after the War were small and had minute brushstrokes, blending clouds and sky with space well defined.

He was born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, and learned much of his painting technique from his (showing 500 of 8326 characters).
