A portrait painter, illustrator, etcher, and painter, Howard Smith studied at the Boston Museum School under Edmund Tarbell and with Howard Pyle in New York at the Art Students League. His illustrations appeared in "Harper's" and "Scribner's" between 1905 and 1913, and for several years he taught at the Rhode Island School of Design.

In 1935, he settled in Carmel, California and stayed there until his death in 1970. He created impressionist paintings of figures in quiet interiors, landscapes, formal portraits, and famous horses.
