Biography  
Kay Smith


An illustrator and painter of American Historical sites, she studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  In 1971 she was asked to illustrate a book on the American Revolutionary War period  as part of a collection of books about the American Bicentennial.  The assignment required her to travel to historic locations to paint the actual scenes.  She developed a fascination with her subject matter and in the ca. 40 years since this first assignment, her portfolio has grown into the largest collection of American historical-site paintings ever created by a single artist.  Called the American Legacy Collection, it is a panorama of historical places and the defining moments of 500 years of American history.  ...  Displaying 750 of 1109 characters.
