Description
Unsigned oil on board, with copy of paper clipping attached verso. This entry level painting by Montague Dawson is in good condition and ready to hang. Montague Dawson never attended art school even though he had a natural flair for painting. Just before the First World War, he joined a commercial art studio in London, where he worked on posters and illustration. With the advent of war Dawson joined the Royal Navy as a naval officer. It was while serving in the Rn he met Napier Hemy; Hemy had a profound influence on young Montague’s work. Shortly after Ww1, Dawson’s art focused mainly on deep water sailing ships, usually in a stiff breeze and high seas. In the 1920s Dawson threw his lot in with the Frost and Reed gallery; they handled his output of paintings and prints. As well as other venues, Dawson exhibited at the Ra between 1917 and 1936. He was also a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Montague Dawson, ‘King of the Clipper Ships’ is one of the most highly respected painters of marine art; his works have a World-wide following and can command many tens of thousands of pounds. Unsigned. This painting by Montague Dawson was painted during a stint at the ’Sphere’ where he painted illustrations, mostly in monochrome, of events in the war. This one from December 7th, 1940.
