Matthew Smith studied art at Manchester College of Technology (1901–1905) and afterwards at the Slade School (1905–1908). The early part of his career was spent in France – and from 1908 he was in Étaples and Pont-Aven. He moved on to Paris, and briefly attended Matisse’s studio in 1910. His work was evidently influenced by Fauvism, although he was also interested in the work of Ingres, and his early work (which included still life and portraiture) paid attention to both colour and modelling.
