Jack Wilkinson Smith was born in Patterson, New Jersey in 1873. His art studies were with George Gardner Symons at the Art Institute of Chicago and with Frank Duvaneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy. In 1906 he settled in Monrovia, California, where his artist neighbors included Frank Tenney Johnson and Norman Rockwell. In southern California, Smith helped found a major venue for local artists called the Biltmore Salon. He is best known today for his powerful coastal scenes and dramatic Sierra Mountain paintings.
