Nude in Rare Book by Warren Davis

Nude in Rare Book by Warren Davis

Title: Nude in Rare Book

Desc: This is the watercolor by Warren Davis which was in the book we 'found' at the Salmagundi Club. Club member Bob Mueller knew about the books and I'm unclear whether Library Chairman John Morehouse also knew. To conservator, Alex Katlan and to me, they were a complete surprise and delight.

Best known for his paintings of idealized female figures, Warren Davis studied at the Art Students League in New York. He was also a magazine illustrator, and many of his depictions of ethereal appearing goddesses were on the covers of "Vanity Fair". Later in his career he became a skilled etcher and exhibited in Europe and the United States including the Pennsylvania Academy and the Salmagundi Club.
