'''John Rubens Smith''' (January 23, 1775 [[London]] - August 21, 1849 [[New York City]]) was a London-born [[painter]], [[printmaker]] and art instructor who worked in the [[United States]].
Smith was born in [[England]] where he first studied art with his father, [[John Raphael Smith]], a [[mezzotint]] engraver. He later studied art at the [[Royal Academy]].
Smith emigrated to [[New York City]] from [[London]] about 1807. He depicted the United States in the decades before photography, and influenced a generation of American artists through his drawing academies and drawing manuals.
