A W DAVIDSON
In 1901 at NAG the artist displayed The Braes of Balqulidden. The following year at NAG he sold two untitled pictures to a visiting Canadian (who also purchased from Ethel Louise RAWLINS and Alfred Joseph Warne BROWNE), as well as showing A Surrey Common.
Other titles sold at NAG include Penzance & Rye (1903), Moonlight and Landscape (1906), The Avon at Brent and Hoar Frost (1909), Roses (1910), and in 1913 The Flower Market and The Valley of the Avon. From Newlyn in 1905 he moved on, giving an exhibiting address in Devon (1907), in Garelockhead, Scotland (1914) and London by 1920. But he clearly returned work to Newlyn to be exhibited for more than a decade and up until 1913, when his final showing at NAG indicate two paintings were shown.
