Charming New England seaside scene of young boy seated under a wall of stacked lobster traps. This lithograph was the work of Lawrence Beall Smith (1902-1989) an American painter, sculptor, lithographer and illustrator. Smith studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. He had a strong national reputation helped by his one-man exhibition at the Whitney Museum in 1941. Smith served as a war correspondent during World War II covering Europe.

Children were a major theme in Smith’s lithographic art. From 1940 – 1970 he was commissioned a number of times by the Associated American Artists. Smith was one of the A.A.A.’s most prodigious artists contributing his sought-after lithographs for upwards of three decades. “Harbor Scene” (created in 1948) was published by the Associated American Artists in a limited edition of 250.
