HENRY WILLIAM BANKS DAVIS (1833- ), English painter, received his art training in the Royal Academy schools, where he was awarded two silver medals. He was elected an associate of the Academy in 1873, and academician in 1877. He made a considerable reputation as an accomplished painter of quiet pastoral subjects and carefully elaborated landscapes with cattle. His pictures, " Returning to the Fold " (188o), and" Approaching Night " (1899), bought for the Chantrey Fund Collection, are now in the National Gallery of British Art (Tate Gallery).

Additional information and Comments

I would like to see a sample of his work. I currently have a painting, titled "The Moore of Ord" by one, "B. Davis" from my Great Grandfathers collection, brought to Canada from Paisley Scotland in the early 1900's.
