    Floyd MacMillan Davis (1896-1966) Original Magazine Story Illustration (1925-1930). Fondly remembered for his delightful and witty renderings of southern rural life, Floyd MacMillan Davis' illustrative creations were as broad as the range of his palette. His earlier works, such as this offering, elegantly depicted the upper class and were published as magazine story illustrations and advertising images. In the 1930s, his humorous illustrations began to appear accompanying stories by such authors as William Faulkner and MacKinlay Kantor, and were enormously popular. During World War II, Davis served as an artist for the War Department, and many of his dramatic war images were published in Life magazine. This magazine story illustration is executed in oil on canvas, it measures 30 x 30, and is signed lower right.
