Gene Davis (Washington, D.C., 1920- 1985) was a self-taught artist and founding member of the Washington Color School. He taught at the Corcoran School of Art and American University and was an artist-in-residence at Skidmore College. While he worked in many styles and media, he is best known for his paintings of multi-color vertical stripes. His work is in museum collections around the world, including the National Museum of American Art and the Hirshhom Museum and Sculpture Garden. Gene Davis was commissioned to create 10th, 15th and 20th anniversary works of art for the Smithsonian's Resident Associate Program. Each work displays his trademark style of edge-to-edge vertical stripes in dazzling colors.
