Charles Harold Davis (1856-1933) was an American landscape painter who married Francis Tyler Darby; her father, Edwin Tyler Darby, had a summer cottage at Glen Haven on Skaneateles Lake where Davis visited and was said to have painted landscapes.


Davis studied at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Académie Julian in Paris. In 1890, Davis returned to the U.S., settling in Mystic, Connecticut. He took up cloudscapes for which he became best-known. His works hang at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington; the Pennsylvania Academy, Philadelphia, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
