****Smialkowski painted in a Modernist style during the 1930's and painted in a more charming primitive Folk Art style in later years. His painting "East Indian Agodas" (1934) to his "Brooklyn Bridge" of 1950 encompasses that earlier style. His later paintings depicted harbor landscapes in a lively Folk Art approach, as his "Life in the Sea" (1964) became more complex and layered. He was a naturalized citizen from Poland, where he earlier lived in Newark, New Jersey with his wife Marcella, 3 sons and a daughter.*****
