About the Exhibition:
Hubert Davis was an American Lithographic artist of the Depression. His earliest work dates back to 1925 and were primarily paintings of landscapes and figures. He started making lithographs by 1931 and continued to use this medium to communicate the effects of the Depression. These lithographs were published by the New York brand of the W.P.A. - Works Progress Administration.
Founded by president Roosevelt, from 1935-1943, the W.P.A. actively assisted American artists during the Great Depression. Without its aid, masterpieces created by this generation of artists would not have been made.
