Don Davey Art For Sale



I acquired this wonderful 1968 watercolour print. Another Eco Liberty treasure. I would love to go back to this bridge. It's been 30 years. (That can't be right. 30 years? Where did 30 years go?)The artist is Don Davey. His distinguished career started at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. His illustrations have lent sparkle to such magazines as McCalls, Saturday Evening Post, and Fortune magazines. He has served on the faculty of the Academy of Art in San Francisco and was instrumental in the formation of the Society of Illustrators which he served as president. On invitation of the United States Air Force, he toured the Orient in return for his subsequent painting presently world tour and part of the permanent collection of the United States Air Force documentary art program. An award winning artist with both gold and silver medals to his credit, Mr. Davey's technique, at once factual and impressionistic, has won him a following the world over. The popularity of his work is best acknowledged by the public's acquisition of well over one million lithographs by collectors both here and abroad. His beautiful and impressive collection of treasured landmarks presently includes California's Monterey Pennsylvania, San Francisco and New Orleans. I know I've said this before, but I truly am exhilarated each day when I can discover, learn and share. Amazing creative world we have.

Hello, I also have that print. Mine is part of a 4 piece set which also includes China town, the wharf and a trolley car. I was wondering what their value might be. Any Ideas?

I absolutely the style of these paintings. Are they water colors or is it a thin oil? I have tried to paint scenic landscapes but they usually turn out like a three year olds drawing. I am excited as I will be taking art classes next semester, I hope I will get better. One day I hope to paint a painting like these. Wish me luck.

I acquired two signed, matted under glass 11x14 Don Davey prints yesterday at a yard sale. One is the San Francisco Bridge and the other is the Trolly car. They are in excellent condition. I'm wondering as to their value and possibly selling them. Carriekilpatrick@yahoo.com
