An original Oil on Canvas painting by 20th century American artist Jeanne Davies. Measures 30.5 x 27" framed, 25 x 20" canvas.
Very Good condition overall with mild wear; the frame exhibiting some wear from age. Jeanne Davies was born in Plainfield, New Jersey in 1936. She attended the Scotch Plains school system.After high school, she pursued that dream by attending the New York School of Visual Arts. She left school after a year, got married and moved around the country with her husband before settling in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
While raising her children, Jeanne painted on everything she could get her hands onwalls, canvas, velvet, glass, wood, furniture She painted game boards, theorems, and primitive portraits. This dealer bought all of Jeannes work which included landscapes in the various seasons, water scenes, Amish scenes, Apple Picking scenes/farm scenes, family portraits, children, a Noahs Ark, and all types of pictures with animals. When the relationship dissolved in 2003, Jeanne retired from painting. She dedicated time to her garden and her grandchildren.She painted pictures for family and friends. (Albert Webster Davies) She has no knowledge as to when, why, or how her pictures became attributed to someone other than herself. Now she knows that her work can be sometimes attributed to Albert Webster Davies or some people have been told that she is Grandma Davies. Her spirit broke as she became aware that she is in danger of never getting the recognition or credit for her talent. Her dream almost came true.
Unfortunately the recognition was misplaced in some cases. Jeanne Davies is now out of retirement and painting again to try to get the name and credit back that she completely deserves. She deserves to be known. She is using her acrylic paints and her oil paints to continue to turn out lovely paintings in both mediums with the signature Davies on them.
There are 2,000 and counting paintings of hers out there. Lets hope people now and in the future will learn that there was a painter named Jeanne Davies and they will see the work she so lovingly created.
