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.
