Biography  
David Davidson


Following is promotional text about David Davidson.


Hearthside has something new, but it’s old. A new exhibit of hand-colored photographs taken by David Davidson in the early part of the 1900s is now on display in the front hall. Davidson was considered to be one of the top two national leaders in hand-colored photography, second only to Wallace Nutting, in the early 20th century. Davidson met Nutting at Brown University and learned this fine art from him.

Davidson spent many afternoons with Nutting in the countryside and took most of his photographs around Rhode Island. He founded the Davidson Photographic Studios in Providence, R.I. and sold much of his work through department stores, gift shops and traveling salesmen.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1922 characters.
