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.

Description:
Lot 19 Montague Dawson British, 1890-1973 Chasing the Slaver: Her Majesty's Brig Acorn in Chase of the Piratical Slave Gabriel, July 6th, 1841 Signed Montague Dawson (ll) Watercolor with traces of pencil on paper laid down on board 21 x 29 3/8 inches (53.4 x 74.5 cm) Parliament's passage of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act in 1806 not only promulgated Britain's increasing discomfort with human trafficking, but also led to formation of the Royal Navy's West African Squadron, based in Sierra Leone and charged with the elimination of the Atlantic slave trade. Vessels such as the H.M.S. Acorn policed the West African coast, stopping, searching and seizing ships suspected of carrying slaves. The present work depicts a notorious incident on July 6, 1841, when the Acorn spotted the Iberian Gabriel angling to pillage the British India, a barque relaying migrants to Australia. According to the contemporary Journal de Havre: At three in the afternoon the Acorn fired, and the Gabriel returned the fire, at the same time hoisting Portuguese colours. The chase continued for twelve hours, during the whole of which time firing was kept up by both vessels, but eventually the Gabriel was dismasted and captured. The escapade documented in this work was initially inspired by the masterful oil of the same event by Nicholas Matthew Condy, The Capture of the Slaver Gabriel by HMS Acorn, 6 July 1841 ,which is presently housed in the Royal Museum at Greenwich. An almost exact composition in oil by Dawson also exists. C Property of a New York Collector Estimate $14,000-18,000 Few tiny tears along the top edge. Minor wear and creases in corners (very tips of corners). 5 inch faint thin line of discoloration at upper right corner.
