Biography   John Smith

John Smith (1717-1764), younger brother of George Smith (1713-1776), was his pupil, and painted landscapes of a similar character; the two frequently worked on the same canvas.

John exhibited with the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1760 and with the Free Society from 1761-64. In 1760, and again in 1761, he was awarded the second premium of the Society of Arts, and in 1762, when his brother George was not a candidate, the first; his 'premium' landscape of 1760 was engraved by Woollett.

He died at Chichester on 29 July 1764.
