Description

Including 101 color and b&w illustrations of Davies' work as well as photos from his family life, this biography covers the artist's life and career from his boyhood in Utica in the 1860s, through his close association with such artists and collectors as Robert Henri, John Sloan, Alfred Stieglitz, Lizzie Bliss, and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, to his eventual death in Italy in 1928 in the company of his mistress, with whom he had lived a secret double life as "David A. Owen" for more than 20 years. In addition to examinations of Davies' own art and his tumultuous personal life, his role as a popularizer of European art in America is explored. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
