It is essentially untouched, and would benefit enormously from basic conservation.

MONTAGUE DAWSON (british 1890-1973) "NEARING HOME; THE HELICON" Signed 'Montague Dawson' bottom left; also titled and inscribed verso, oil on canvas 24 x 36 in. (61 x 91.4cm) provenance: Newman Galleries, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Private Collection, Pennsylvania. in generally good overall condition - with areas of some restoration and with scattered retouch; the painting has a somewhat heavy relining. The ship itself appears to be virtually untouched - we note a very small area of what appears to be some restoration to one of the masts at right. In the sky there is some restoration, the largest such area around 2 3/8 inches at right, with some of the restoration in the form of craquelure fill and with scattered fine, precise retouch - much in the form of pinhead size spot fill. In the ocean there is an area of restoration at bottom right, an area of restoration at bottom center left and an area of restoration at bottom left. The latter does run through a small part of the horizontal 'line' that frames the signature and is located just above and to the right of the letter 'ON' at the end of DAWSON.

Description:
Montague Dawson (British, 1890-1973) The Atlantic packet Albion of the Black Ball Line signed lower left "Montague Dawson" oil on canvas 24 x 44-1/8 in. (61 x 112 cm.) Footnotes PROVENANCE : - Frost and Reed, stock no. 5276, titled in pencil on the overlap by the artist. According to Charles Kinzett the work was executed in 1947. The Black Ball Line of Trans-Atlantic Packets was founded in New York in 1817 and formed by five business partners, Isaac Wright, William Wright, Francis Thompson, Benjamin Marshall and Jeremiah Thompson, to begin the first regularly scheduled trans-Atlantic service of freight, mail and passengers between New York and Liverpool. In order to quicken the delivery of mail and conveyance of passengers, packets were often "driven," even in gale force winds. Due to these severe operating conditions, most packets had relatively short service lives, with many of them meeting their ends in disasters at sea. After only three years of service, the Albion succumbed to a gale off the Irish Coast near Kinsale, claiming forty-six of the fifty-four crew members.

Description:
Montague Dawson, F.R.S.A., R.S.M.A. (Chiswick 1895-1973 Midhurst) An armed cutter chasing a smuggler signed 'MONTAGUE DAWSON.' (lower right) oil on canvas 28 x 42 in. (71.2 x 106.7 cm.) THE PROPERTY OF AN AMERICAN PRIVATE COLLECTOR During the 'age of sail', the mighty line-of-battle warships which bombarded enemy fleets into submission were regarded as floating fortresses of immense power; singularly lacking amongst these great ships' many attributes however was speed and when despatches, men or prizes needed to be got home as quickly as possible, something altogether faster was required. Hence the development of the small armed cutters and schooners which rapidly assumed a role of considerable significance in communications between the fleets and their bases. The most celebrated of her breed was the gallant little schooner Pickle, which brought home the news of the victory at Trafalgar tempered by the death of Lord Nelson at the height of the battle in 1805, but there were many other similar vessels whose names have become lost with the passage of time. Lightly armed, with perhaps ten or twelve small-calibre guns, the cutters proved especially suitable for the job and were often to be seen racing across the world's oceans as fast as any other craft of their day. In addition to carrying urgent despatches, arguably their prime function, they performed equally valuable work as pickets - to prevent surprise attacks, scouts - to range ahead of the fleet to report on enemy movements, and escorts - to accompany merchant prizes to a friendly port for lucrative disposal. In times of peace they were also usefully employed on anti-smuggling patrols which kept every available revenue cutter busy around the coasts of Great Britain where smuggling was rife.
