This gorgeous bleed print (meaning image was inked over entire sheet of hand-made paper) is infused with uplifting color.

About the Artist (1910-1979)   A native of Arizona, Lew Davis was born in Jerome.  He began painting there in 1925.  From 1927 to 1931 he participated in formal training at the Art School of the National Academy of Design in New York.  He won both the Tiffany Fellowship for Painting and the Yaddo Fellowship as well as the Hallgarten Prize and the Cannon Prize, both at the National Academy of Design.  In 1935 he moved back to Jerome under the U.S. Treasury Department project for painting where he began a mining camp series of paintings.

 

In 1938 Davis was first included in Who’s Who in American Art.  Solo exhibitions occurred in Colorado, while he was represented by Associated American Artists in New York and the Dalzell Hatfield Gallery in Los Angeles.  In 1960 a retrospective exhibition was staged for him at the Phoenix Art Museum, at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff (1970) and at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts (1979).  In 1977 Governor Raul Castro proclaimed March 6, 1977 as “Lew Davis Day”.
