This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An expedition artist, Edmond Smith attended Georgetown College (now University) in Washington DC and then was appointed a Captain's clerk in the U.S. Navy. In that service, he went to Valparaiso, Chile where he worked with Lieutenant James Gilliss on the U.S. Astronomical Expedition to the Southern Hemisphere. From 1849 to 1852, he lived in Santiago and in his spare time from astronomical measuring collected natural history specimens.

Following the completion of his expedition work which included his illustrations, Edmond Smith went South to study the Araucanian Indians and subsequently wrote and illustrated a book: "The Araucanians; or, Notes of a Tour Among the Indian Tribes of Southern Chili".

He exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1859 and showed three paintings that included a scene of Dusseldorf, where he reportedly had visited.

In the 1890s, he lived in New York City and died in 1911.
