Felix Antoni Smuglewicz

Felix Antoni Smuglewicz (1824–?) painted mostly landscapes and portraits, but was not the most famous or the most productive of the Smuglewicz family of artists. He did not limit his activities to painting: he took part in the Samogitian cultural movement, and corresponded with Simonas Daukantas, Mikalojus Akelaitis, and other important figures who helped to revive the Lithuanian national identity. In the 1850s he became involved in the activities of the cultural circle led by his brother Franciszek in Courland.
