ALBERT WEBSTER DAVIES – WAYSIDE INN
Circa: 20th Century
Albert Webster Davies (1889-1967)
Davies takes his subject matter from the 19th Century. His paintings are characterized by great attention to detail with even the smallest elements carefully delineated. One can observe within the painting a sense of organization; an ability to render exteriors; buildings and living creatures; and the charming use of color seizing a spontaneous quality.
Longfellow’s Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts is the setting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Tales of a Wayside Inn first published in 1863.
January 15 thru February 14, 1965 – The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Colonial Williamsburg exhibited a grouping of his paintings.
