T. Davies
American, active 1827
Related Content

Although most maritime historians agree that the inscribed "T. Davies Bangor" on the National Gallery's Ship in Full Sail (1980.62.1) should be interpreted as T. Davies of Bangor, Maine, no T. Davies who could have been active in 1827 (the date is also part of the inscription) has been discovered in Maine genealogical sources. The National Gallery's painting is the artist's only known painting. [This is an edited version of the artist's biography published in the NGA Systematic Catalogue]
