Description:
BRITISH NEARING PORT: THE GREAT TEA CLIPPER Montague Dawson R.S.M.A., F.R.S.A. 1895-1973 signedMONTAGUE. DAWSON. (lower left) oil on canvas 35 3/4 by 24 inches; 90.8 by 61 cm Provenance J.J. Gillespie & Co., Pittsburgh Wilma Sinclair Le Van Baker, Steubenville and Pittsburgh (acquired from the abovecirca1935) Thence by descent Catalogue Note The Clippers were a race apart...lean with sharp bows, raked masts and a great cumulus of sail. They raced each other across the world's oceans, their captains were treated like today's superstars and their names became legendary. Fortunes were wagered on the result of races between them, which might last from Hong Kong to London or from New York round the Horn to San Francisco...setting sailing records that would last forever (Ron Ransom,The Maritime Paintings of Montague Dawson, Devon, 1993). Montague Dawson dedicated the majority of his career to the depiction of the clippers that carried freight and passengers quickly and across vast distances during the nineteenth century. With his first-hand knowledge of the sea he celebrates their beauty, grace and speed. Beneath crisp blue skies and skimming across churning seas, this clipper flies every inch of sail pushing vessel and crew to the limit. Among the first owners of Nearing Port: The Great Tea Clipper was Wilma Sinclair Le Van Baker, of Steubenville, Ohio, and like the clipper\’s crew, she lived an extraordinarily full and adventuresome life. During World War I she was active in the Red Cross and defense work, and then pursued politics in the 1920s, elected to the Republican National Committee from 1926 until 1932. The following year she began an eight year term as President of the Union Savings Bank & Trust Company in Steubenville. She published a number of books and was an extensive traveler, having circled the globe numerous times. It is clear that she was filled with the spirit of adventure, and had a natural affinity for the thrilling excitement captured in Dawson\’s Nearing Port: The Great Tea Clipper.

Provenance with Frost and Reed, London. James Hill (1933-2009), San Antonio, acquired directly from the above circa 1970. By descent to the present owner. Queen of Clippers was one of a famous trio of clippers, including the John Bertram and Winged Racer, designed and built by Robert E. Jackson at East Boston, Massachusetts. Ordered by Messrs. Seccomb and Taylor, no expense was spared to make her the perfect ship and ensure her success. Registered at 2300 tons and measuring 258 feet in length and with a 44 foot beam, she was long and graceful and capable of 18 knots with a leading wind. Her frame was constructed of seasoned white oak and her scantling of hard pine, sheathed with yellow metal and painted black above the metal. The figurehead was the creation of J. W. Mason, regarded as one of the most skilled artists of the time. The Boston Daily Atlas reported on 2nd April 1853 'This splendid vessel has been the admiration of all who have inspected her, not only for her faultless beauty of her model, but also for the strength of her construction and the excellence of the workmanship.'
