Biographical Text

Joseph Lindon Smith was a renowned American painter. He studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and is most noted for his paintings of Egyptian tomb reliefs in the early 20th century. Smith documented wall paintings in tombs, and monuments in Giza and the Valley of the Kings, working with experienced Egyptologists and researchers such as Howard Carter, Gaston Maspero, George Andrew Reisner, and Theodore Davis.
