Art measures 20 inches wide by 24 inches high set in a gilt painted frame with a linen border. Labeled on front A.B. Davies with plaque. Artist Biography: Arthur Bowen Davies was born in Utica, New York, and studied at the Chicago Academy of Design. He traveled to Europe many times throughout his life, and eventually settled in Florence, Italy. Davies is known for a style that combined the visionary with Symbolism, with elements of Tonalism, Art Nouveau, and Cubism. Throughout his career, he became increasing interested in expressing a feeling of lightness in figural compositions. Davies was well respected and widely collected in his day. The Metropolitan Museum of Art held a memorial exhibition for him two years after his death, and his work is currently represented in more than 100 museums internationally.
