Tim Smith (Massachusetts 1955), 2 frühe Aquarelle auf einem Blatt,

 jedoch ebenfass signiert: S 1980;

2 beautiful, very early Tim Smith watercolors on one sheet, both
signed, one titled: “early spring, 1980 ”; reverse
watercolor signed and datet. S. 1980.

Aquarellgröße: 45 x 31 cm ( 17,7 x  12,2 inches)

Born in Massachusetts in 1955. After completing studies in philosophy
(aesthetics and metaphysics), he came to Europe where he completed
studies at the Künstakademie in Vienna. He has painted throughout the
world, improvising his atelier in the worker hotels of Istanbul and Prague,
in Scottish farms and Bangkok high-rises. Private studies with the painter
Zao Wou Ki, long discussions with the painter Sam Francis, and twenty
years of walk in the city of light are major influences. The French Cultural
Ministry has given him a lifetime studio in the heart of Paris, a few metro
stops from the 'Ile de la Cité' and Notre-Dame. His implantation in France
 puts him in contract with writers, painters, actors and musicians from
 both France and all around the world. His life and work have been the
subject of a documentary film for the French Centre National de Recherche
Scientifique. He has lived and work in Paris since 1982.

This Watercolor comes from his first exebition in Vienna 1980. To His “Vienna-trip”
he wrote in the biography: ” Best deal ever made: traded the full packet of my life
model drawings in Vienna for a train ticket to Paris. Retrospectively, it's clear that
 the drawings where downright poor and that the trip has been really good.”

Also please notice his auction results at international auction houses.
