Born in New York, Walter Granville-Smith, reportedly produced the first color illustration in America, for Godey’s Lady Magazine, in conjunction with a story entitled “The Christmas Witch,” by Gertrude Atherton. His illustrations appeared in Harper’s, Scribner’s, Truth, & Collier’s. Granville-Smith, however, counted success in more than illustration. He won numerous prizes for his maritime & genre art from the National Academy of Design, the Carnegie Institute, the American Water Color Society & the Salmagundi Club, of which he was a member. He worked in oils, watercolors, & etchings under the tutelage of Walter Satterlee, J. Carroll Beckwith, & Willard Metcalf, at the Art Students League of New York, & abroad in 1910. Granville-Smith’s hefty exhibition record includes the Boston Art Club (1898-1909); 50 years at the National Academy of Design (1890-1940); the Pennsylvania Academy (1904-28); the Art Institute of Chicago (1896-1925); the Corcoran biennials (1907-37); & the Carnegie International (1905-31).
