Walter Granville-Smith was a highly regarded illustrator, a painter whose career spanned the first four decades of the twentieth century.  Smith worked in oil and watercolor and his charming genre scenes of young children and women involved in leisurely activities along the shore, in parks, and along city streets, were well received and many were well known through publications. 


Granville-Smith studied at the Arts Students' League in New York City with William Satterlee, Carrol Beckwith, and Willard Metcalf-all successful and progressive American artists.  He further honed his artistic training at the Academie Julian in Paris. 


Upon returning to the United States, Granville-Smith settled in New York City-he lived at 96 5th Avenue for 35 years-and began exhibiting works at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Boston Art Club, and the National Academy of Design.  He was a prolific artist who executed elegant genre scenes as well as impressionistically rendered landscapes.  Granville-Smith exhibited widely and frequently, and his work became well known; many of his watercolors were reproduced as illustrations for some of the leading publications of the era, including Harper's and Scribner's Magazines.  


Walter Granville-Smith won numerous awards for his work, including prizes at: National Academy of Design (5), West Indian Exposition, Charleston (1), American Watercolor Society (2), Worcester Art Museum (1), Art Institute of Chicago (1), Exposicion International, Buenos Aires (1), and the Salmagundi Club (6)
