Carlton Alfred Smith (1853-1946) | Genre painter

Carlton Alfred Smith, RBA RI ROI was a British watercolourist, oil painter and genre artist who often made images of cottage interiors showing domestic life and figures in cottage interiors in a romantic manner towards the end of the nineteenth century.
He was the son of a steel engraver and spent some of his early years being educated in France. The artist also studied at the Slade School of Art, winning gold and silver medals.
He became one of the most technically accomplished watercolorists of the late Victorian period. With Charles Edward Wilson (fl. 1890-1930) he moved from London to join the artistic community founded by Myles Birket Foster Allingham (1848-1926) in the towns or villages surrounding Witley in Surrey.



Smith began his career as a lithographer before the start of his better-known interior domestic views that are marked with strong sunshine.
He exhibited mostly at Suffolk Street, London, but also at the New Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of British Artists from 1879 onward.
Between the years 1916 and 1823 the artist lived in India, during which time he produced both portraits and fascinating scenes of street life.
Works by Carlton Smith can be found in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Sunderland Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Melbourne.
He was a member of the Royal Academy of Art.
