Friday Art: Edward Thompson Davis


Artist: Edward Thompson Davis


  • 1833–1867

We have see such ugliness in the last week with the tragic deaths of many innocent people in Paris and in other parts of the world as a result of terrorist attacks. It can be easy to forget that whilst these events are just horrible and most of us struggle to understand why they happen — we need to always remember the beauty that is around us. The terrorists don't want us to see the lovely, the kind, the caring, the gentle . . . but they are all there if we look. Just because the terrorists can't see the beauty, they can't take it away from us. 

Enjoy these beautiful works of art of Edward Thompson Davis, in particular the scenes of family life — a grandmother with her grandchildren, the young listening to the elderly, two children helping each other. This is what we need to focus on.

    1. They are and I just love the intergenerational paintings, something that is really lost these days.

  3. These are great. This is what is missing in today's world, in modern society - the sense of "togetherness". Family. Multiple generations interacting in simple ways. Such a shame.
