Oil on Canvas
Montague Dawson's renown rested principally on his skill in depicting the great clipper ships in the "days of sail" in the late 19th Century. Collectors of his early paintings included Queen Elizabeth II and American Presidents of the time, including Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson.
Montague Dawson became perhaps the greatest painter of the sea and sailing ships of the first part of the 20th century. His original paintings are scarce and extremely expensive and many of the original 20th century signed colour prints are now faded, lost or damaged.
