Bessie Ellen Davidson was born in 1879, in Adelaide, Australia, to a family of Scottish and English origin.
She spent a majority of her life in Paris, where she exhibited in a number of salons throughout her career. She was a founding member of the Salon des Tuileries, at which she would exhibit almost every year between 1923 and 1951. Davidson's oeuvre is dominated by still-lifes, portraits and landscapes. While her subject matter remained consistent, the disparity of styles evident throughout her body of work clearly demonstrates her willingness to explore new techniques and artistic influences.
