Joseph H. Davis (painter)

Joseph H. Davis (active 1832–1837) was an itinerant American portrait painter. Over a times of lonesome five years, from 1832 to 1837, he painted more or less 150 watercolor portraits of residents of Maine and New Hampshire. The body of put on an act he left in back is terribly regarded for its calligraphic line, miniaturizing delicacy, and decorative stylization. His pictures are in many important collections, including those of the American Folk Art Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the National Gallery of Art, the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Strawbery Banke museum in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
