Description:
British FRSA, RI, RSMA [1895-1973] SHIMMERING HORIZON oil on canvas 28 x 42 in. (71.1 x 106.7 cm) signed; titled on gallery label verso Provenance: Williams & Son, Grafton Street, London; Estate of Eric Connelly, Calgary (purchased February 14, 1973) Montague Dawson spent much of his childhood by the sea, on Southampton Water, growing up with a father who worked as a yachtsman and under the legacy of a grandfather (Henry Dawson) well known as a marine artist. It is not surprising that he developed a love for ships, the sea, and art at a very young age. At fifteen, he obtained a job in London, working at a commercial art studio. Here, he was able to further develop his artistic skills. While in London, he was also exposed to many museums and to the works of the Dutch maritime masters that greatly inspired him. At the onset of the First World War, he enlisted in the Navy. Dawson became a lieutenant, serving on minesweepers and trawlers. Because of his talent for drawing, he was tasked with the job of visually recording the war at sea for documentation and posterity. Many of these drawings were published in newspapers, with an entire edition of "The Sphere" being devoted to Dawson's illustrations of the final surrender of the German High Seas Fleet. Also during this time, Dawson met marine painter Charles Napier Hemy, who befriended and mentored the young artist, and encouraged him to pursue art as a career. After the war, Dawson became more involved in the artistic community, making the acquaintance of art dealers, honing his craft, and exhibiting. He also moved back to the sea. During World War Two, with the English Coast engaged in battles, Dawson did not move inland, but continued painting. At the request of Navy officials, he created dramatizations of sea battles, intended to reassure the public and convey to them the Royal Navy’’’’s skill and courage. After the war, Montague Dawson became a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, and began to exhibit there regularly. Post-war, he increasingly painted clipper ships, the multi-sailed majestic vessels that traveled from New York to China during the nineteenth century. He produced many paintings of these ships in various working scenes, but perhaps the paintings that are the most poignant are the elegant portraits, single ships, silhouetted by the horizon and infused with light, imbued with personality and character. It is these paintings that give us a glimpse into the the depth of his passion.

Description:
George Nicholson Joining in 1961 as a non-executive Director of the famous firm of Camper & Nicholson, George, second son of the great designer Charles Nicholson, has yachting in his blood which has informed the greater part of his active career. Although technically retired, George remains an enthusiastic yachtsman and avid yachting historian as this substantial library and collection attest. When not afloat, George and his wife divide their time between properties in Switzerland and the South of France and, as these have become too large for their present needs, he has decided to part with a library he has spent many years amassing. A huge range of volumes, each with a bookplate, offer the serious researcher and unrivalled opportunity to add to (or create) significant libraries of their own. George became a fan of the contemporary French painter Guy L'Hostis over twenty years ago and, as a keen and critical observer, judges him "the best technical artist alive today" - less photographic than some, L'Hostis's genius is his ability to capture the spirit of a moment with accuracy and a "period" feel - undoubtedly helped by reference to the Beken of Cowes photographs of the period, he needs no more than a light touch of his brush to achieve what others strive for without success. The selection offered here represent private commissions undertaken to represent the greatest of the Camper & Nicholson yachts largely built in the great days of the J-Class and designed by his father, Charles Nicholson. � MONTAGUE DAWSON (BRITISH, 1895-1973) Yeoman and Lalage - six metre yachts off Isle of Wight Signed 'Montague Dawson' (lower left) Oil on canvas 24 x 36in.
