Called the “King of the Clipper Ship School,” Montague Dawson (1895 – 1973) was one of the 20th century’s most renowned nautical artists. Raised near the ocean by a seafaring family, he excelled at depicting the relationship of sky, sea and ship in his paintings. Employed by “the Sphere” as a maritime battle illustrator during both World Wars, at the peak of his career, Dawson was said to be the highest-paid painter other than Picasso.

    Comments:

    It is a highly worthwhile complement to the other sailing ship pictures I bought at the same time: the only one to feature a battle scene. The impact of the latter is highlighted by the somewhat lacklustre rendering of the sea and coastline, but look for the flames from the cannon and the cannonballs landing in the water, sending cascades into the air. The skirmish itself is interesting, featuring a most unequal contest in which the smaller ship appears gallant but doomed.

    • This premium giclee print, an upgrade from the standard giclee print, is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclee prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world. Giclee (French for 'to spray') is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make giclee prints appear much more realistic than other prints. More
