Montague Dawson (1890-1973) was the son and grandson of marine artists and became perhaps the greatest marine artist of all time. Although he never went to art school Dawson inherited a flair for painting and in about 1910 joined a commercial art studio in London where he worked on posters and illustrations. After the First World War he set up as a painter and illustrator concentrating on historical subjects and portraits of deep-water sailing ships - usually in a stiff breeze and a high sea.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
