DOUGLAS ION SMART R.E. (1879-1970)
“A street scene at Norwich” Watercolour
A highly accomplished draughtsman and etcher, producing an enormous body of work during his lifetime, including many fine watercolours.
He studied etching and engraving under Sir Frank Short and exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of Etchers and The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour.
This picture is typical with its restrained but nicely balanced tones and colours, his usual attention to careful drawing and his flair for less formulaic compostition.
