Xanthus Russell Smith (February 26, 1839 (180 years ago) – dec. 2, 1929 (90 years ago)) was an American artist best known for his illustrations of the American Civil War.

Biography

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Smith served in the United States Navy during the war and depicted naval battles with a variety of media, including pencil and oil paint. His best known work (right) recreates the 1864 (155 years ago) battle between the CSS Alabama and USS Kearsarge off Cherbourg, France.

Smith did not actually participate in most of the battles he illustrated; instead, he generally consulted those who were present at the engagements. His unpublished autobiography is preserved in the archives of the Smithsonian Institution.
