Quick Reference

(b Irthington, Cumberland, 26 July 1749; d London, 22 Mar. 1831). English landscape watercolourist, nicknamed Warwick Smith because he was patronized by George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick, and also lived in Warwick for a time. Lord Warwick paid for Smith to visit Italy in 1776–81, and he later made many sketching tours in Wales and the Lake and Peak Districts. He experimented with directly applied colour without underdrawing and his best work has strength and freshness. He was very prolific, however, and much of his later work is routine. He is represented in most major collections of watercolours.
