Ned Smith, artist and self-trained naturalist, is well-known for his painstakingly detailed wildlife paintings and sketches. His love of wildlife led him to become a Game Commissioner, and after leaving the job in 1953, he began to practice his art full-time. Conservation was still near to his heart, and Ned Smith prints were produced in a series for the Game Commission’s Working Together for Wildlife project in Pennsylvania.
Ned Smith passed away in 1985, and today his original paintings have commanded prices as high as $60,000.
