Born in Utica, New York, Arthur Davies gained a reputation for ethereal figure paintings, ones that expressed lightness and mysticism.  He was also a principal organizer of the 1913 Armory Show that revolutionized American art by introducing modernism to the viewing public.

He attended the Chicago Academy of Design and from 1879 to 1882, traveled in the West, to Colorado and Mexico City where he worked as a drafting civil engineer.  He briefly attended the Chicago Art Ins (showing 500 of 12848 characters).
