Ruth Wolf Smith

(1912 - 1980)

Ruth Wolf Smith found her niche as painter of imaginative and glowing modernist and visionary figure pieces (fantasies and "surrealer" moments) on canvas before mid-century. She pursued early training at Fresno State College (1932-33), and then, from 1931 to 1934, with Edwin Evans, Frank Ward Kent, Caroline Parry, as well as her husband, S. Paul Smith. Also, the Smiths owned and operated their own Ruth and Paul Smith studios after 1947. Even though there are normally fewer words written about Ruth Smith than Paul Smith, in retrospect it is her work that is the far more interesting artistic outcome of the two careers.
