Marillier, in his seminal book of 1904, The Liverpool School of Painters, noted of William Davis: No man saw further than he into the opportunities of a quiet rural subject: a hedge, a stream, a drenched autumnal pasture, and flitting of light and shadow over an English sky, a farm with its sheltering trees and homely appurtenances. All this he felt keenly and thoroughly, and translated it into art, not only familiar and realistic, but touching, elevated, and on occasion, even grand

Condition Report: Small patch to reverse lower left, some shrinkage, minor retouching to sky area
