Born in Kentucky, Schwartz studied at the Art Institute of Chicago as well as other Ohio area schools before studying in Montreal under Adam Sherriff Scott, a multi-media artist. Painter Davis Francis Schwartz worked in watercolors and oils, and his colorful but muted landscapes captured California's early 20th century unspoiled scenery, especially the San Francisco area. He was named Davis Francis Schwartz, artist for the State Board of Harbor Commissioners. Despite and because of the artist's illustrator experience, Davis Francis Schwartz landscapes for sale show detail yet offer an Impressionistic feel, evident in his depictions of Spanish missions, coastal areas, and mountain scenes.
