FREDERIC M. BELL-SMITH. In the Selkirks, 1909. University of Lethbridge

FREDERIC MARTLETT BELL-SMITH b. London, England, 1846, d. 1923. Bell-Smith traveled to the Rockies and the West Coast on several occasions between 1887 and 1918, at first on CPR passes made available by William Van Horne. In the Selkirks is painted in the high Victorian style, attempting to suggest atmosphere through blurring and smudging of washes.
