Biography Charles Alexander
Smith is known professionally as Charles Alexander. He was born in Ontario and lived and worked in Montreal. He studied in Europe, first in Paris at the Académie Julian, where he won a bronze medal at a Salon show, and then in England.
In London, he was commissioned to paint the officers of the Life Guards whose colonel-in-chief was King Edward. King Edward also gave Smith personal sittings.
His early works were primarily landscapes, though when he returned to Canada, and for the rest of his career, he became renowned for his figure studies and portraiture.
Smith's works are scarce and rarely appear at auction.
