This biography from the Archives of AskART:
He was born in New York to a wealthy Jewish family.  His brother was a safari hunter in Africa, another sibling moved to California to work in cinematography, his sister was an opera singer in New York City.  David's actual name was Mayer which he spelled backwards, possibly to better sell his artwork.  He studied art in Paris.  Upon returning to the States, he painted frequently for the duPont family and their relatives.  He preferred oil painting, but also did excellent sketches and watercolor.  He also invented and patented different tools for use in the home.  

During the war, David established an art school in Wilmington, Delaware to enable impoverished young artists the opportunity to perfect their art.  Delaware's first famous Afro American artist was his student.  When the King of Sweden visited Delaware (Delaware was first settled by the Swedes), the governor presented him with David's sketch of the Old Swedes Church.  

David married a Gentile, thus, at the time, severing his ties with his family, which the family regards as a great loss.  His grandchildren and great-grandchildren grew up with the marvelous stories of his life and the family cherishes his paintings they own.

Information provided by the artist's great granddaughter.
