"Twilight over the Water" was singled out by critics reviewing Davis's exhibition as one of his most beautiful works. Davis sent the painting to the influential collector and dealer Thomas Clark and his record book indicated that he ultimately gave the picture to "Mr Sargeant", presumably, the painter John Singer Sargeant, whom the artist knew.
