Print

Seated Nude
1865-1928, American

A very fine original etching by American artist Warren Davis, this image measures 7 7/8 x 5 3/4 inches, c. 1900, pencil signed. Warren Davis studied at the Art Students League in New York and became known for his etchings of idealized female figures, many of which were used on the covers of Vanity Fair and Life magazines. Later in his career Davis exhibited in Europe and the United States including the Pennsylvania Academy and the Salmagundi Club. This image is a great example of Davis' use of delicate lines and simple compositions to elegantly capture the beauty of the female figure.
