Artist of the Day- Lew Davis (click on image to view individually)

Yesterday at the Currier Museum in Manchester NH I was quite taken by a painting by the Arizona artist Lew Davis. I’d never heard of him and was delighted that the Currier had recently purchased this painting! He was a WPA painter known for cowboy-themed murals in post office lobbies from California to Oklahoma. I couldn’t find but the one of WW11 but the few works I was able to find felt full of human compassion.
