Beautiful, oil on canvas, portrait sketch by Campbell Lindsay Smith (1879-1915)
Initialed CLS and dated 1910.
The artist was a student of the Royal Academy Schools from January 1898 to January 1903.
Tragically he was killed in action in Belgium Nov 1915,
Just three months after he married.
The sitter has great character and the artist has captured a beautiful, confident and mischievous expression.
I love the sketchy quality of the paint application and colour palette, for me, the overall piece is just perfect.
