Arthur B. Davies straddled the boundaries between the 19th-century romantic tradition and early twentieth-century modernism in the United States. Born in Utica, N.Y., Davies studied at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1878 and at the Art Students League in New York in 1887. A masterful painter, lithographer and etcher, his art rejected both the realism of Bellows, Hopper, Sloan, and others and early experiments in abstraction as seen in the graphic art of John Marin and Max Weber. Beginning around 1900, Davies focused his imagery almost entirely on a personal world of imaginary creatures, allegorical nudes, and dream-like landscapes.
