Description:
Montague Dawson R.S.M.A., F.R.S.A. 1895-1973 BRITISH THE ARRIVAL, THE THETIS signed Montague Dawson (lower left) oil on canvas 40 by 50 in. 101.6 by 127 cm Frost & Reed, London Ambassador and Mrs. Arthur K. Watson (acquired from the above circa 1970) Property from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Watson, Jr. (acquired from the above and sold, Sotheby's, New York, December 2, 2005, lot 205, illustrated) Acquired at the above sale The Arrival, The Thetis, depicts an important geographic location off the Isle of Wight. The vantage point of the viewer is from Alum Bay cliff top looking towards the prominent rocky outcroppings known as the Needles. The white cliffs of the Isle or Wight can be seen to the left. The Thetis arrives calmly in Alum bay as the sails begin to be furled; the great ship dwarfing the surrounding vessels. An armed merchant marine ship is just about to pick up her new pilot, seen approaching the great vessel in the small boat with a P on the sail. Not only is the Isle of Wright just off the coast of Dawson's Hampshire home, it is also legendary in British nautical history. The Needles were a scene of constant shipwrecks, which went on unabated despite the presence of a lighthouse. Montague Dawson was born into an artistic family in London in 1895. He was taught from an early age by his father, a Thames yachtsman and artist, and his grandfather Henry Dawson, a successful landscape painter. Montague Dawson would become perhaps the best known and most successful marine artist of his generation. Although Dawson was not formally trained, he inherited a talent for painting, and around 1910 was hired by a commercial studio in London. At the outbreak of World War I, he joined the Royal Navy, where he illustrated images of war for publications. After the War ended, he established himself as a painter and illustrator, concentrating on historically accurate portraits of ships, drawing on Britain’’s rich nautical heritage. It was in the 1920s that he became formally associated with Frost & Reed. This association increased his exposure, and demand grew for his works. From the early 1930s he lived at Milford-on-Sea in Hampshire, and he exhibited occasionally at the Royal Academy between 1916 and 1936.

Description:
Montague Dawson (British, 1890-1973) Bound for the West - East India Clipper Ship Waimate indistinctly signed lower left "Montague Dawson" oil on canvas 24 x 36 in. (60.9 x 91.4 cm.) Footnotes Waimate was built by J. Blumer and Company at Sunderland in 1870, she had a gross tonnage of 1123 tons. During her voyages to New Zealand, she held the record for the fastest passage from London to Lyttleton of 74 days. On one run home to London, the Waimate narrowly avoided disaster when she suddenly found herself land locked off the Patagonian coast. Like all vessels making the run home, her anchors had been unshackled and stowed along with her large chains which were run down into the chain lockers. The Waimate found herself off a rocky rugged coast full of indentations with very deep water right up to the cliffs on a dark and dirty night, being pushed towards the shore so the crew had no choice but to round the vessel by canvas, and bring up and put out the anchors. Fortunately the anchors held and the ship and her compliment were saved. During her many runs to Lyttleton, Wellington, Port Chalmers and Auckland the Waimate never met with any other serious situations. She was sold to the Russians in 1896 she was renamed the Valkyrian and lost without trace between Newcastle, NSW and Chile in 1899, while bound for Iquique.
