Stephen Catterson Smith, Portrait Painter

(b. 1806, d. 1872)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

S. Catterson Smith, P.R.H.A. Chalk drawing, by Himself; in possession of Mrs. Catterson Smith, 42 St. Stephen's Green, Dublin.

Was born at Skipton-in-Craven, Yorkshire, on 12th March, 1806; the son of Joseph Smith, a coach-painter, and Anne, daughter of Stephen Catterson, of Gawflat, Yorks. His parents removed early in life to Hull, and at the age of sixteen he entered the schools of the Royal Academy. In 1824 the Society of Arts awarded him a silver medal for a painting in oil. He was then living at 11 Margaret Street, Bagnigge Wells. He afterwards studied in Paris, and settling in London gained some reputation for his skill in drawing portraits in black chalk, many of them being lithographed and published by R. J. Lane, A.R.A. He made drawings of this kind of several members of the Royal Family. For some time he was in Yeovil, and after his return to London he sent a small picture, "The Studious Philosopher," to the British Institution in 1828, followed in 1833 by a larger picture, "A Jew at his Devotions"; and in 1830 he contributed a "Portrait of Robert Lee, M.D." to the Royal Academy. In George Hering's "Sketches on the Danube, in Hungary and Transylvania," published in 1838, are six lithographs of peasants done by him after drawings by Hering. Receiving some commissions to paint portraits in the north of Ireland, he went to Londonderry in January, 1839, and remained there until 1845, painting portraits and small genre pictures.

In 1841 he sent two portraits to the Royal Hibernian Academy, beginning his connection with that body which continued until his death. Leaving Londonderry in 1845 he settled in Dublin, at first at No. 24 Kildare Street, and afterwards, in 1846, at No. 42 St. Stephen's Green, where he continued to reside until his death. The connection he had formed in the north of Ireland stood him in good stead; from the moment of his arrival in Dublin he was in request as a portrait painter, and during his long career as a painter there was scarcely an eminent person in Ireland who did not sit to him. He was appointed portrait painter to the Lord Lieutenant, the Earl of Bessborough, and painted his portrait and those of each succeeding viceroy for thirty years. In 1854 he painted for the Corporation of Dublin a portrait of Queen Victoria, in commemoration of her visit to Ireland, a picture which now hangs in the Mansion House. On the 11th May, 1844, while he was still in Derry, he was elected an Associate of the Royal Hibernian Academy, and was advanced to full membership on the 13th September following.

On the resignation of George Petrie, Smith was, on 7th March, 1859, elected President of the Academy. After holding the post for seven years he was succeeded on 18th October, 1866, by Sir Thomas Deane, who was President for a year, Smith being again elected on 17th October, 1868. He, however, only occupied the post for a few months, for, becoming a candidate for the Directorship of the National Gallery of Ireland on the death of George Mulvany, he resigned on 20th March, 1869, when he was succeded by Thomas Alfred Jones. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1830, but did not appear there again until 1849, and after that exhibited only in 1855, 1856 and 1858. On the 30th May, 1872, after having been engaged during the day in hanging the pictures in the International Exhibition in Earlsfort Terrace, he was seized with apoplexy and died about eight o'clock in the evening, on the drawing-room sofa in his house No. 42 St. Stephen's Green. He was buried on the 1st June, at Mount Jerome, his six sons being present at his funeral.

Smith married, in 1845, Anne Wyke, who herself occasionally exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy. Her father, Robert Titus Wyke, was a water-colour painter and teacher of drawing in Wexford. She died on 8th December, 1886. Smith had six sons and four daughters, of whom Stephen and Robert became artists. Robert is still living and is Director of the Art School in Birmingham. Stephen, recently deceased, is separately noticed.

Smith painted two portraits of himself; one is now in the National Gallery of Ireland, the other is in the Council Room of the Royal Hibernian Academy; a chalk drawing belongs to Mrs. Catterson Smith, 42 Stephen's Green.
