C prob Charles DAVIS
fl 1890

The artist exhibited two St Ives paintings with the Cornish painters at Dowdeswells [Exhibition catalogue reproduced in Hardie (2009)]. There are at least four possible artists listed with this initial C; this is probably Charles DAVIS (fl 1891 Wood), also noticed at the time by Tovey in his social history study of artists associated with St Ives.
