The work of Charles Harold Davis, an American painter active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, shifted in style over the course of his career.

His early work shows his training at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts school, as well as his study in Europe at the Académie Julian (where he studied with Jules Joseph Lefebvre) and his subsequent time painting in the Forest of Fontainebleau.

There he was influenced by the painters of the Barbizon School, and his style shows tonalist leanings and eventually develops into an impressionist character. It is in the latter style that he painted a number of cloudscapes that he became noted for.
