Description: 
Surviving portraits by "Left Hand Painter" Joseph H. Davis suggest that, though his career was short, his style was distinctive. In his small scale works on paper, Davis posed subjects in profile, seated or standing, in lavish interior scenes decorated with grained and painted furniture and lively patterned carpets. Davis frequently included props to individualize his portraits-the detailed drawing seen on the table at the left and the carpenter's square held by the boy suggest that Azariah Caverly may have been an architect, engineer, or carpenter.
