David Davies (1864 – 1939) was an Australian artist who was associated with the Heidelberg School, the first significant Western art movement in Australia.

Born and raised in Ballarat, Victoria, Davies attended art classes at the Ballarat School of Mines and Industries. He subsequently attended the National Gallery of Victoria Art School in Melbourne, studying under Frederick McCubbin and George Folingsby from 1886 to 1890. During this time, he often visited Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder and other plein air painters at their Mount Eagle “artists’ camp”.

The artists stayed in a farmhouse on the property owned by Charles Davies, the brother of David Davies’ future wife.

In 1932 Davies moved to Looe, Cornwall, England, where he died on 26 March 1939.
