William R. Davis, was born 1952, in Somerville, Massachusetts.  Mostly self-educated as a painter, Davis has combined natural artistic ability with a capacity for keen observation of art from the past, an interest in art history, and an art historian's instinct for ferreting out highly abstruse bits of information about past technique. Until fairly recently, Davis built his reputation primarily as a marine artist, specializing in highly detailed, beautifully finished small oils.  Presently, both his field studies and finished studio landscapes continue to reflect his interest in highly detailed smaller works. Davis has been included in the E.H.H. Archibald's authoritative volume on Marine Art from the Flemish masters to the present. His work has been on the cover of American Artist Magazine and in depth article in American Art Collector . Also illustrated in many museum exhibition catalogs, books and magazines including Smithsonian, Cape Museum of Fine Art, Cahoon Museum, St. Botolph Club, Mystic Seaport Museum, American Yacht Club, The Haggin Museum and more. He is a founding member of the "New American Luminists".
