Howard Everett Smith was a New Englander, born in West Windham, New Hampshire. After attending the Art Students League in New York with classes under George Bridgman, he transferred to the Howard Pyle school in Wilmington, Delaware. He later attended advanced classes with Edmund Tarbell at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts.

  He was very soon able to have his work published, making early appearances in Harper’s Weekly and Harper’s Monthly. His illustrations were also published in Scribner’s Magazine and in The Ladies’ Home Journal, as well as in a number of books including The Children’s Longfellow and The Beginning of the American People.

   Smith was especially interested in Impressionism, and in 1911 won the Paige Traveling Scholarship from the Museum School for two years’ study and travel in Europe. With income from his illustrations, he extended his study for another year. After his return in 1914, he became an instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design. In addition to landscapes, he also painted a number of portraits and worked with lithography. In his later years, Smith moved to California to become an active participant in the Carmel Art Association, exhibiting and winning many awards.
