Thomas Smith (died 12 September 1767), also known as Thomas Smith of Derby, was a landscape painter and father of John Raphael Smith and miniaturist painter Thomas Corregio Smith. Smith painted many landscapes including historic houses like Chatsworth and views of the Lake District.
Smith's 1751 painting "An Extensive Landscape with Hunting Party" was sold for over $67,000 at an auction at Sotheby's. He painted the picture in 1751, a year before his son was born and sixteen years before his death.
