George Smillie (American, 1840-1921) was a painter of 19th century landscapes.  He was the son of a printmaker James Smillie who engraved Hudson River School landscapes.  He spent most of his life in New York, but he travelled West with his brother to the Rocky Mountains and Yosemite Valley.  Later in his career his brushwork became more impressionistic due to his travels in Europe in 1872.
