Charles Harold Davis was a turn-of-the-century Connecticut painter. He was a founding member and a major figure in the Mystic Art Colony beginning in 1892. After a trip to Europe in 1880, Davis began painting in a typically Impressionist style, using light and the mutability of light as the main focus of his work. He is well known for his cloudscapes and his work is almost exclusively of rural Connecticut.

Davis was a well-known artist in his time, but has been somewhat unrecognized in recent times. A retrospective of the artist’s work was put on at a minor East-Coast institution in the Fall of 2015.
