    Art Brokerage: Arthur B. Davies American Artist: b. 1862-1928. Arthur B. Davies was an American artist known for his paintings of nymphs and unicorns amidst pastoral landscapes. Born Arthur Bowen Davies on September 26, 1862 in Utica, NY, he went on attend the Chicago Academy of Design and the Art Institute of Chicago. After relocating to New York, Davies worked as a magazine illustrator while taking night classes at the Art Students League. Despite his allegiance to the Ashcan School of painters, Davies work was more closely aligned with the idyllic scenes of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and the Italian Renaissance. By the turn of the century, the artist had established a collector base for his work and acted as a mentor to a number of younger painters, including Marsden Hartley. Davies would go on to organize the famed 1913 Armory Show, and aid Lillie P. Bliss and Alfred H. Barr Jr. in founding The Museum of Modern Art. Notably, for a period of 25 years Davies maintained an extramarital affair and adopted the alias of David A. Owen as a means of carrying it on in secret. He died on October 24, 1928 in Florence, Italy. Today, the artist's works are held in the collections the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.
