The Company [1952- ]
DAVIS & LANGDALE COMPANY was established in 1952 by Roy Davis (1922 – 2014), who remained a principal until 2014, more than 50 years later. It functioned as Davis Galleries from 1952 until 1973; as Davis & Long Company from 1973 until 1980; and as Davis & Langdale Company with Cecily Langdale from 1980.

Housed in a 1870s brownstone, DAVIS & LANGDALE COMPANY deals in American art of the 19th and 20th centuries; British art of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries; vintage photography; and contemporary art. Areas of particular specialization include Bloomsbury and modern British art; and the artists Gwen John, Maurice Prendergast, Charles Prendergast, Wilson Bentley, Albert York, and Charles Jones.

Roy Davis [1922-2014]
The New York Times has confirmed the passing of art dealer Roy Davis, aged 92. Born in 1922, Davis was a prominent member of the Art Dealers Association of America and also founded the eponymous Davis Galleries in 1952, as part of the Davis & Langdale Company.

Situated in New York, the gallery specialises in 19th– and 20th-century American Art, and British Art from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries — notably the work of Bloomsbury artists — and vintage photography. Additionally, it focuses on artists including Gwen John, Maurice Prendergast, Charles Prendergast, Wilson Bentley, Albert York and Charles Jones.

Davis worked at a number of prestigious institutions throughout his lifetime, including the White House Fine Arts Committee; the Century Association, NY; and the Art Dealers Association of America, and Charles Jones.
