Magnificent oil on canvas lowlands landscape by New York City artist James David Smillie who lived from 1833-1909. It is a New England scene, perhaps coastal Rhode Island, where he was known to paint. Smillie was the founder of the American Watercolor Society and the New York Etching Club. He was a pupil of his father James Smillie Sr. who was a famous engraver for NYC banks. From his father he learned etching and engraving. The elaborate detail of the trees in the painting shows the influence of his training. Smillie is listed in all major references including Faulk's Who Was Who in American Art and Zellman's Three Hundred Years of American Art, page 260. He is represented in the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D. C. , the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the New York Public Library, as well as other museums. This impressive painting is in excellent condition with no repairs and is in a fine gilt wood frame. It is signed in the lower right corner. Measures 17"x 36"(sight) and 25"x 43"(framed).
