SMITH IRISARRI, Antonio, South American artist, born in Santiago, Chili, in 1832; died there, 24 Nay, 1877. He was educated in the National institute, and in 1849 entered the academy of painting in the University of Chili. He served as a conscript in 1853-'7, but returned afterward to his art, and in 1858 was employed as a caricaturist on the "Correo Literario." In 1859 he went to Europe and studied in Florence under Charles Mated. On his return to Chili in 1866 he opened a studio, devoted himself to landscape-painting, and soon acquired fame as an artist, obtaining the grand premium in the national exposition of 1872. His principal pictures are " The Valley of Santiago," "A Moonlight Night," "A Waterfall," " Wood Scenery in the Mountains," " A Sunset in the Andes," "Surrounding of a Mountain-Lake," and " Mist on the Sea-Shore."
