Brian Davies was an internationally renowned artist who brought the concept of still life up to date. These still life studies are strongly influenced by Dutch Old Master paintings of the Seventeenth Century.

The artist became interested in this genre at the beginning of his career. Originally from a Welsh background, Davies followed a banking career in London and Sydney, where his painting began.

After several years he abandoned finance for fine art and returned to Europe, spending time in Paris and Marseilles where he became fascinated by the seventeenth century Dutch masters. He developed an enduring interest in still life, displaying a talent that matured over the years.

His studies are painted with infinite variety, combining harmony and composition to telling effect, possessing a timeless appeal, and earned him an enviable reputation. Towards the end of his life, he started producing another kind of still life, stripped of all superfluous elements, imparting a bold austerity to the compositions.

Brian Davies lived in London and southern France. The fruit from the orchards and vineyards around his house in a village in the Languedoc hills were often depicted in his paintings, as are items from his collection of antique glass, pewter and porcelain, acquired over the years.

Brian Davies exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition on a number of occasions and also at the Paris Salon. He is represented in collections across Great Britain, Europe and the United States. He died in 2014.
