Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

William Davis (1812-1873)

He was predominantly a landscape painter associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. He helped to organise Pre-Raphaelite exhibitions in Liverpool and was friendly with Hunt, Rossetti, Brown and Boyce.   Born in Dublin and a student of the Dublin Academy, Davis moved to Liverpool and fully integrated himself to life in the north of England.  Davis joined the Liverpool Academy and was kept occupied by a number of Liverpool patrons such as George Rae and John Miller.

Several fine Pre-Raphaelite landscapes by him are in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.  They share a combination of sharply rendered detail and Romanticism of mood.
