The 'Thermopylae' Leaving Foochow

Art print by Montague Dawson #102580

Montague Dawson


Montague Dawson
Montague Dawson (1890-1973) was the son and grandson of marine artists who grew up to become perhaps the greatest marine artist of all time, so successful at his peak that he was rumoured to be one of the two best-paid artists in the world, second only to Picasso. 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 - earning him the title “king of the clipper-ship school".

This canvas has pride of place in my main room. It will be a talking point for visitors, even though there are original works on other walls. The image is almost as good as the original, and the previous works I have bought indicate to me that it will not fade or warp. A good deal.
