Description:
MONTAGUE DAWSON (1890-1973), BRITISH “‘THE SOUTHERN CROSS’’’’ OF 950 TONS BUILT IN 1851” Oil on canvas; signed lower left, titled in pencil to the top selvage verso 20" x 30" — 50.8 x 76.2 cm. Private Collection, Montreal, QC until at least 1955 as “A Westerly Trade Wind”; By descent to the grandson, Montreal, QC Lars Bruzelius, Southern Cross, 1997/8, unpaginated; L. G. G. Ramsey, Montague Dawson, R.S.M.A., F.R.S.A., Leigh-on-Sea, 1967, p. 46, no. 227, which depicts a similar work with Southern Cross as its subject. “Southern Cross” was commissioned by Baker & Morrill of Boston by E. & H. O. Briggs during the winter of 1850/1. She was approximately 170 feet long and registered with a tonnage of 938 (old measurements). With a great sail plan and a gilded eagle on the wing as her figurehead, her maiden voyage took place on March 19, 1851 from the coast of Boston en route to San Francisco. “Southern Cross” was partially demasted twice during this harrowing 136 day voyage. She faired much better from San Francisco to Singapore, living up to the prophecy that she would be a flyer, the ship made the voyage in only 43 days. From here she sailed to Calcutta in less than two weeks. She achieved the trip from San Francisco to Calcutta in 56 days, the fastest on record. She returned to her home port in Boston in a mere 97 days. On June 25, 1852 “Southern Cross” embarked on her second voyage. Somewhere in the South Atlantic, a fire began in her lower hold causing considerable damage. The vessel shambled in to Montevideo in mid-July. She was repaired and sent back to sea, where she continued to make several speedy passages to the Far East. The spring of 1863 saw the American Civil War in full swing. “Southern Cross” was charged to take a load of log wood from western Mexico to New York. 77 days out from Buena Vista the vessel was spotted by the Confederate armed merchant raider, “Florida.” Captain Benjamin Howes and the “Southern Cross” were ordered to surrender and Howes, his wife, his crew and passengers were captive aboard the captured American Whaling Schooner V.H. Hill. The “Southern Cross” was set on fire and left to burn in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Description:
Montague Dawson (British, 1890-1973) Running free - the Yankee Packet Dreadnought signed 'MONTAGUE DAWSON' (lower left) oil on canvas 51 x 61cm (20 x 24in). Footnotes Provenance With Frost & Reed, 26 March 1933, registered number 5331. Repurchased by Frost & Reed, 11 Jan 1934, registered number 5557. Believed to have been purchased from the above by the current owner's grandfather. Although stated to be a medium clipper, Dreadnought's lines bore more resemblance to those of a contemporary packet than an ocean thoroughbred. Built by Currier & Townsend at Newburyport, Massachusetts, she was launched on 6th October 1853 and was ready for sea the following month. Her owners, the Red Cross Line, had ordered her for their New York to Liverpool service and, having chosen Captain Samuels as her master, they asked him to superintend her construction. The result was a fast and reliable ship that became known as "the wild boat of the Atlantic", a reputation also helped by Samuels' superb seamanship and his determination to drive her with the maximum sail whatever the weather. Curiously she broke no records but she maintained her Atlantic schedules with greater regularity than any other sailing packet then afloat. Between December 1853 and February 1864, she completed thirty-one round trips for the Red Cross Line, Captain Samuels remaining in command for all but the last voyage. In the summer of 1864, Dreadnought was sold but put onto the New York to San Francisco run where she remained for several years. On 28th April 1869 she sailed from Liverpool again, bound for San Francisco, but was wrecked on the island of Tierra del Fuego just prior to rounding Cape Horn. All of Dreadnought's officers and crew were saved but the ship herself was a total loss and cost her underwriters $83,000. We are grateful to Michael Naxton for his assistance with cataloguing this lot.
