DAC Collection Artist Information
American painter and printmaker
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Originally a magazine illustrator, Davis seriously turned to painting after viewing the Armory Show of 1913. His works featured banal images (a cigarette packet, signs, notices), altered with strong colors and words in script, suggesting the rhythm of an urban environment suffused with jazz.
