About: A painter of dreamy landscapes and nudes, Arthur B. Davies was a highly successful artist by 1907. He had been showing at Macbeth Gallery since 1896, and the photographer Käsebier was among the collectors of his work. Softer in focus than the photographs of Shinn, Sloan, Glackens, and Henri, Davies' portrait matches the dreamy landscapes and nudes he painted.
