Louis Davis (1860-1941) was an English watercolourist, book illustrator and stained-glass artist. As Cormack notes, “Amongst English artists of the Arts and Crafts progressive school of stained glass, only Louis Davis approached Christopher Whall’s pre-eminent position. His most important commissions date from the decade or so before 1914, and almost all were for buildings in Scotland, although Davis always worked and lived in England.”
