Montague J. Dawson (English 1895-1973) Oil on Canvas depicting the Battle of the Dardanelles en gresaille. Signed lower right MDawson. Note: Montague Dawson was unquestionably one of the greatest sea painters of the 20th century. Born in Chiswick, London, to a family of sea-farers; his father was an engineer, yachtsman and artist, while his grandfather, Henry Dawson, was a well known Victorian sea and landscape artist. It is said that he completed his first painting by the time he was five years old. Throughout WWI and WWII, Dawson supplied the magazine Sphere with monochrome illustrations of historical events of the wars. It is notable that Sphere devoted an entire issue to Dawson?s portrayal of the German Grand Fleet?s surrender in WWI. It was these illustrations that brought him the notoriety necessary to secure his place as a highly regarded painter / illustrator of historical maritime subjects and portraits of deep-water sailing vessels. This painting was one such image supplied to Sphere.
