Davidson's painting is reminiscent in style and subject of Ker-Xavier Roussel's Nabis Canvas. This painting is quite charming. His instructors acknowledged his exceptional ability and he was awarded a scholarship to attend The American Academy Rome (1913-1916).
"He held several prestigious teaching positions in the United States. He was an instructor of painting at Cooper Union New York City, (1925-1932). He was also a teacher of mural painting at the Yale School of Fine Arts. New Haven Connecticut.
During the Depression, George Davidson became a WPA Artist under The Roosevelt Administration. Mr. Davidson assisted the Federal Government as an Art and color consultant at the New York World’s Fair in (1939-1940).
This versatile creator was not only a teacher, and a muralist but a noted portrait artist as well. He produced a hefty inventory of landscape paintings. During this period he was the focus of several one man shows and also participated in group exhibits. At the National Academy of Design along with the Chicago Institute of Fine Arts. His easel production required attentiveness along with much hard work. Easel painting was not as strenuous as wall painting. It provided the chance to be creative, it also provided the opportunity be free of some of the restraints involved in mural work." This is from the The Mattituck Museum, Waterbury Connecticut and was compiled by Jim Kieley Woodbury CT.
