Arthur B. Davies
Arthur Bowen Davies was born in Utica, New York in 1862. He studied at the Chicago Academy of Design from 1879 to 1882, and later briefly at the Chicago Art Institute. In 1885, he relocated to New York City where he enrolled at the Art Students League and the Gotham Art Students League, supporting himself as a billboard painter, engineering draftsman and magazine illustrator. He made the first of many trips to Europe in 1893, visiting Holland, Paris and London. Upon returning to the United States, he settled in Congers, New York, yet still traveled the U.S. extensively.
His style combined elements of Symbolism, Tonalism, Art Nouveau and Cubism. He began making prints in the 1880s and produced some two-hundred graphic works between 1916 and 1928, when he died.
