John Smibert (Also known as John Smybert) was a Scottish American artist. You can find John Smibert paintings in various art museums:
The painting at Yale University was John Smibert favorite painting as it hung in his Boston office for everyone to see.
Next to the entrance to the Granary Burying Ground is this monument:
Here lies John Smibert
Painter 1688 - 1751
Cherish A Man Such As This
Erected by the City of Boston
John B. Hynes, Mayor
In tiny print you can see: "Ca Ascieri Adi Biccari." I wasn't able to find the date that the Bronze monument was placed, but I suspect it was in 1951 which would have been the 200 anniversary of John Smibert death.
