Biography   Allen Jr Smith


New York trained artist, Allen Smith, Jr. settled in Cleveland, Ohio in 1841, having been in New York City from 1930, and swiftly rose to prominence as a portrait and genre painter.  Like all artists, he suffered greatly during the Panic of 1857, and this circumstance forced him to take a job in James F. Ryder's studio where, according to his employer's advertisements, he produced the "best oil painted photographs in Ohio." 

With eight children to support, Smith collaborated with other photographers in subsequent times of need, both in Cleveland and Cincinnati, but ended his days happily in Lake County, painting landscapes in the Big Creek Valley.

He is credited as designing the first flag of the State of Michigan.<   ...  Displaying 750 of 1005 characters.
