BIOGRAPHY
Henry William Banks Davis was a landscape and animal painter. He exhibited over one hundred works at the Royal Academy between the years of 1852–1904. He also exhibited works at the British Institution, the New Gallery, and the Royal Society of British Artists. His subjects were mostly landscapes with animals in painted Wales, Scotland, and Northern France. In the 1850s and early 1860s he was much influenced by the Pre - Raphaelites. Henry Davis’ work of this period reveals a high level of observation and detailed technique. Later, he broadened his style and turned to larger size works of the Landseer and Rosa Bonheur type. His pictures were immensely popular and made high prices at auction in his lifetime. Two works were bought by the Chantrey Bequest in 1880 and 1899. Henry William Banks Davis was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1873.
