Footnotes

  • Louis B Davis was a notable English illustrator, watercolourist and stained glass artist and an active member of the Arts and Crafts Movement. It is for his stained glass that he is best remembered, a skill he learnt whilst studying under Christopher Whall. Davis designed and created a number of notable stained glass windows such as the First World War memorial window at Cheltenham College and the choir windows at Dunblane Abbey.
    Davis was an acquaintance of William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his work has a distinctly Pre-Raphelite character both in style and subject matter, indeed, the art historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner describes him as the last of the Pre-Raphelite artists.

    It is thought the present lot possibly depicts St Cecilia seated before her harpsichord.
