Charles H. Davis returned to the United Sates in 1891, choosing Mystic, Connecticut, as his new home, a place full of mood and atmosphere for his brush to capture. His energetic compositions, more impressionistic in nature towards the end of his career, earned him prizes and awards almost annually from, among others, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, and the Pan-Pacific Exposition.
